Tech: Kids build working BSG Viper flight simulator

Five high school kids have spent the past year working on a life-sized Battlestar Galactica Viper flight simulator, and it is now operational.
The Viper, which is basically a fully functional cockpit mounted so it can spin a full 360 degrees in "flight," was built with everything from scrapped airplane parts to an old race car seat.
The kids even made all the control mechanisms and designed the simulation software themselves.
The final version is on display at Maker Faire 2012 festival in California this week. The project was funded via Kickstarter and raised a whopping $11,578.
