Let’s face it, playing racing games with a controller simply doesn’t recreate the thrill of speeding around a track, but this inventor may have a solution. The Q managed to weld his very own motorcycle simulation rig that works with nearly any racing game. The build process involved sketching the rig before cutting and then welding rectangular tube steel with a MIG welder. Read more to see the build and it in-action.
The Q then had to link the central shaft to the secured bearings, while pistons were added to create the resistance needed for leaning into the curves. Next, a seat and an old bicycle fork were attached the the frame and linkage from the handlebars to the base allows you to tilt it like a real motorcycle. Some paint, a license plate and lights were also added for authenticity. How does it work? A PlayStation controller secured in place with a 3D-printed cradle with small levers that pull strings to articulate the joystick, while a throttle cable pulls back the trigger on the controller.
