Cool lil ting but really in GPB I think it would be for body movement only which is quite cool. I tried doing the same but for your ass by having sensors under a seat on one of my rigs but needs work to refine movement.

Thanks for the link Max.

Has got me thinking that an easy way to do rider movement might be to have a stirrup or inverted t bar that hangs from the table top by a rose (spherical) bearing down to your feet. The top of the rod where it comes through the bearing then drives digital switches or analogue pots like a normal joystick. You could then control rider position with your feet, might be possible to add gear and brake with a bit of imagination. Could be a very cheap, home made and compact control solution where space is too limited for a sit on rig.

I have a new mod coming for controllers to use ure feet for shifting and rear brake and a few more mods too. Will be posting more when the company is up and running.
