In Case Flight Sims Or Racers Aren't Real Enough

You know the best part of trade shows? It's the unusual stuff.

Meet the DareSeat 3 Motion Simulator. It's basically a hydraulic-powered seat for racing sims and flight sims, and it's designed to add the feeling of g-forces while you speed down a straight or do a barrel roll mid-air.

At the Gamescom show floor, the makers were using Project CARS to demo its capacity. It's pretty bloody wild - I can't imagine what Ace Combat 7 would be like to play in something like this.

So if you want to add an extra dimension to your vehicle/fighter jet/truck simulator (yes, the setup supports Euro Truck Simulator), there's a special seat just for you.

As long as you have almost $11,000 (€6799).

    FYI - those are electro-mechanical linear actuators - not hydraulics.

    You can see the electric motor and linear actuator on his left side under the rail.

    Pretty compact unit, I have to say.
