It simulates G-forces in cornering, acceleration and braking. The helmet is used for protection and it also has build in virtual reality and sound system. For propulsion electro magnets are used and awesomesauce to lubricate the moving parts :) Special thanks to Benjamin Garson for his Automotive Design seat and Amarok Triple Clamp 2 models , Michel Durocher for http://grabcad.com/library/logitek-steering-console-g-25 , Scott Bruins for Nested Spheres and Gee for Half Face #1 and Poseable figure #1 . Thanx GrabCAD!
With this assembly I tried to show young engineers that even with existing parts and technology you can come up with infinite number of possibilities to create something new. The youtube video hopefully explains it's working principal.

    I do not know who in the world of F1 would not love to get into this and have fun. Now ... have you thought of adding a wraparound screen and then all you have to do is send it to BlueBlue or Ferrari and well I will put money on then investing

    Thank you for your support Doug :) I was thinking that a virtual reality helmet would be nice to have on this thing. It would allow the driver to turn their head and look around also ;) and it would protect the head from bumping somewhere. If you have any contacts, you have full privileges to present the project to anyone interested. I thank you again :D
