If you are looking for the ultimate driving experience from your racing games at an affordable price you might be interested in a new system called the RacingCUBE.
The RacingCUBE provides gamers with a motion platform specifically designed for racing games to provide an immersive experience without compromise, yet compact enough to suit almost any room.
Watch the video below to see the rotation and motion that is capable of being simulated using the RacingCUBE which is taken to Kickstarter to raise the required funds to make the jump into production. As developers explain a little more about its design :
The key element in the RacingCUBE is three (RC3) very fast servo actuators. Fast actuators is the single most important element in making a racing simulator. The elements for the servo actuator is specially chosen to provide maximum performance without the need of bolting the simulator to the floor.
The gear is a steel worm drive and by carefully calibrating the actuator’s controller, we have made a strong and very responsive high performance servo motor. It is so responsive that it makes you feel the smallest bump and the slightest road texture.
For simulating a vehicle, its rotation is incredibly important, and with rotation you instantly feel when you lose traction. When you’re driving a car that’s sliding all over, it’s the rotation that tells when you lose traction. It gives a realistic sense of feeling, and makes it possible to drive the car to its limit.
