Getting work done or playing a sim game in a “real” cockpit, while having both feet firmly planted not the ground, is an ambition of some that usually requires lots of skill or very deep pockets. Dogfight Boss founder Lukas Homola thought he could do things differently, and decided to recreate the cockpit of an F22 fighter jet in an easy-to-asseble cardboard kit. He and a friend went to some aviation museums and took pictures of cockpits to recreate high definition textures for the kits. Since they’re made out of cardboard, it’s easy to cut out holes to fit any “instruments” you might want, like an iPad or a monitor or anything else you like. They’re made out of cardboard ribbing for durability, and all the parts except the center console are simply slid into place and not glue, which makes disassembly a snap.

It’s a $500 pledge for a physical version of the cockpit, though for $48 you can get a print-at-home PDF.
