Ferrari simulator using a robotic arm (w/video)

Built at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Germany, the CyberMotion Simulator uses a robotic arm, which can lift 500 kg, to move the driver along the six axes of motion creating a lifelike experience; if the car flips, the robotic arm will even put you upside-down. The simulator was built “to understand how humans experience the sensation of motion” gaining “better insights into the cognitive processes of the human brain.” Wait a minute, it’s not just for fun? Hit the jump to watch the video.
