Just paste the video ID (in this case 2vLKSmFKbKA) between the [ youtube] [/ youtube] brackets. Not the complete URL.

I don't know about that. Yes it is huge and fancy and can do all six axis as well generate some G forces by moving it back and worth and rotate.

But I would gladly take this:



But that is actually for fairly small space. While if it would be possible for lower price than 50 000€ then this would be nice:



So that big thing surely has some very nice things to go for, but if well calibrated for the motions, the military could easily get multiple of those for training. And check out the SFX-100 that is open source and you can buy the parts for IIRC about 1500€ to build one.



All these things makes me wonder that why did the military go for the Kraken? It is massive and costs a lot. But how much better it really can provide help for simulation? Looking at their software, I would say that SFX-100 + DCS would be superior to anything that Kraken can provide with one display inside that sphere.
