FREX Motion Head – Preview Video

The Japanese simulation hardware experts over at FREX have unveiled their newest development – FREX Motion Head.

Meant to be primarily a driver training tool, the Motion Head devices transmits the forces of racing straight to the driver’s head, similar to what happens with G-Forces in a real race car.

    I really don’t wanna know, what that thing will do with your head, when you crash your car :s

    Imagine this with one of iRacings accidents where you shoot in the air at 103550mph. Have fun dying

    give it a year or two and gaming will be more dangerous than actual sports

    Well, i’m sure the company been developing and testing for security purposes, it would be stupid thinking otherwise…i know japanese people had the tradition of kamikazes, but i’m sure FREX isn’t “simulating” that as part of theire future plans…..if that doesn’t pass safety tests, it won’t be comercialize..period

  • Petros Dialektakis

    … and more expensive than normal sports as well ;)

    Hmmmm… Would I put my head into a machine that moved my head around? I don’t think so.

    Step1: Invite your worst enemy at home.
    Step2: Get him inside your rig with this thing strapped on.
    Step3: Get him to LFS demo server and wait for first corner action.
    Step4: Bring flowers to the cute widow at the funeral.

    it’s all good. the C1 snapping component is only held in place with an elastic band .What’s the worst that could happen ;)

    come on…

  • Ghoults

    It is definitely a different kind of idea. The main downside for this is that it only outputs longitudinal forces and not lateral ones. This means that the feedback this can give is only about the acceleration and braking and not about the cornering. Maybe the motion rig is supposed to give the main sensations and this is only an addon to a motion rig?

    I think when it comes to motion rigs I’d expect the lateral feedback is more important than the longinitudal one…

    Its an expensive headache…. :)

  • Paul Thompson

    I wonder if they are working on any body attachments ?

    Really, no one will test for safety… and approve!

    Ii know that many gadgets aren’t, peharps some other Frex systems aren’t, don’t know…
    …but as a matter of fact this one is been testing in what safety concerns, and that i know for sure, trust me…

    …so man, NO i don’t agree with you when you state “NO ONE” will test

    Yes, this is suposed to work as a complement to the existing simconmotion system from Frex, and the logical is exactly that….i also know that together with rrecently released material that together can add various moving axis/basis to the simconmotion, Frex will release some tutorials or similar

    “beer gut wobble motion sim”
    Where do I sign?

  • Paul Thompson

    You read my mind :D
