I am a really big fan of racing simulators. Especially the type that takes into account more than just force feedback for the steering wheel. I want motion as well.

Some engineers have taken a robotic arm that would be used at amusement parks and used the thing to hoist a cockpit seven feet into the air. Once in the air the cockpit is used to recreate a Ferrari F1 driving experience.

The photo here shows the rig without the force feedback steering wheel, but that is featured in the video. I think it's really cool that these guys got someone to pay for the build of the coolest driving simulator I have seen under the guise of studying how humans interact with motion.
