Tomy Dashboard / Cockpit

Posted on January 13, 2013 at 9:33 AM

Early 80's you had these Tomy and other brands toy cockpits. They looked very impressive with a lot of handles, knobs, lights and noise.
The screen suggests a computer feature but is in fact an ingenious electro-mechanical system: A light with a rotating plastick screen with a print of a road and vehicles. Your car on the screen is glued on a plastic stick. By steering the wheel it moves left or right while the racecourse rotates under it.
The airplane cockpit actually gives pretty realistic simulation of a flight, the 20 seconds before you crash into the ground to be exactly... It's paranoid ! The screen runs crazy and the noise drives you(r parents) mad ! The guy doing the video review of the racing car version sums up the features and fun perfectly!
