After reliving a bit of my childhood today, I realized something. I ALWAYS wanted to grow up to be a giant, destructive super-monster. This virtual reality simulator provides just that.

Particitants are fitted with motion-capture 'dots' on each joint of the arm, leg and one on the head. Next, construct a large-scale city of your choice. Granted this would be time consuming, so changing the city every week wouldn't be too tough. Give the participants about 100' x 100' worth of scaled-down city to work with. The features of the room are entered by location into the computer with corresponding height, width, etc. thus generating a virtual city out of padded structures.

This simulated environment is redered and sent to the VR headpiece of the participant. Running screaming pedestrians, smashing cars, knocking glass out of sky-scrapers, EVERYTHING.

Group rates available, score can be calculated by monetary damage, high bodycount, etc. Contests can be held by giving the participants a time limit to workwith, or some other limiting factor. First one to reach 100 Billion dollars in damage ... be creative.

       sounds good lets play!
Could even be sold as a stress reduction system, had a bad day? go squish the people who's fault it is!
Then have the customer supply photos of the people who irritate them and that is who shows up inside the VR sim.(+)
