Techradar.com: Designed by Lee McCormack and engineered by McLaren Applied Technologies, the Ovei media pod is the ultimate in ‘must-have’ home cinema accessories.
It may look like a Clockwork Orange stage-prop, but the Ovei is actually a home personal cinema system for one.
Originally billed as the Oculus, the pod has been six years in the making. The latest version was showcased at this year’s CEDIA, and it’s the first time it has been shown in the UK. Two Oveis were on show: the first was a modified version of the system complete with steering wheel and pedals for gaming use. This particular model we saw was actually modified for use by Lewis Hamilton.
The second was for home cinema use. Lie inside the air-conditioned pod – which uses an F1 and NASCAR climate control system – and you can have a very unique cinema experience. Once inside the pod, everything is controlled by the touch screen panel.
The Oveis are made in the UK and can be shipped throughout the world.
