I'd love to have one for flight/space sims, but the problem is that they often have a lot of keybindings and not being able to see the keyboard would be a problem. Not to mention that I'm sure it would make many sick when you're pulling tight turns.
With modern flight sims you can use mouse to access cockpit controls and the most critical functions are usually mapped to HOTAS anyway, so that shouldn't be a problem. I'm still concerned about the resolution. I don't think it's big enough to see the instruments or cockpit displays.
