real virtual car: automotive gaming interface

From: http://realvirtualcar.blogspot.com/ .




Some of you might have seen this site making the rounds on the web. Geeks interface a real car with some racing software. A very cool project with some potential real-world applications. There are plenty of pics and vids on the site, although it's been sporadically up and down, due to bandwidth limitations. There are some other odd automotive creations linked to on the site as well.

I'm a driver. I think the simulations suck. They don't allow for true wheel or pedal feel and on top of that they don't give any of the G-forces that you get in a real car. Hog pooey, I want my belly in my throat when i crest a hill at 120mph. When I hit the go pedal i want to know it and when i use the whoa pedal i want my foot to feel the rotors not to mention my bottom needs to slide sideways when i crank on the 'ol spindles left or right! furghetaboutit

.....although i'd probably be one of the first to climb in if given the chance!

I wouldn't say that about yourself Chevelle, because no ones paying you!!
Ok sorry that was a bad joke, But that driving thing is awesome. Still nothing like the real driving experience but Id love to have one in my living room.

Jon, I can't get over the fact you actually called them geeks.
