Note that the instrument panel is not placed in the optimal position. I am moving it to an adjustable mount that I am in the process of fabricating.

Work continues on my simulator. I now have a fully functioning control panel working with software wrappers that allow it to integrate with multiple flight simulations. Other additions include 3 front speaker mounts fabricated from Vex structural hardware to hang the speakers below the displays.

Now I can start integration with Glass for the affective computing/augmented reality portion of my research!
