Something a little bit different. A friend of mine has been working of this: A Manned Manouvering Unit sim, coming soon to iOS.







Flying this thing around is surprisingly rewarding. The best bit is the attention to detail on those models. He is not cutting any corners!





More stuff on his blog, if you are interested in his day-to-day coding adventures... smile

ww.orbitersim.com also had an MMU simulator (might have required mods though)... it can be a terrifying thing. The speed relative to the earth is so great - and a slight variation in thrust can send you a long way away from the shuttle's orbit.

Too bad it's iOs only. Not a fan of Apple. PC or Android version would be instant buy.

Looks awesome though.

I don't have a newer generation iOs device or I'd be all over this. If he can port it over to PC I'll be more then happy to buy a copy.
