Anybody has tried one of these ? Could be useful for rider lean ...

I wonder if this could take being sat on, hmm.....

Looks interesting.

You cant stand on it so probably not sitting eiter.

Also it would be bloody uncomfterable ;D

Intriguing idea Max, but could be a little precarious for use in keeping consistent and smooth bike lean angles with that device I feel?  :)

Hmmm.... That's given me an idea! Using game foot-pedals to lean the bike leaving just the throttle, gear change and braking to deal with on your main controller!  ;D

I made a mod to an xbox controller to shift and rear brake with feet as IRL which made it far better than that way round Hawk plus your foot movement is not as sensitive as hands and it is very twitchy.

PS I did a full motion bum unit for a sit on frame but I ran outta money but the principle was great.

I said for rider lean, not for bike lean :)

Nice but I think a simple pressure sensor mat to sit on would do the trick.

Any example ?

Looks the part.   ;D

Know a few folk who've used pedals for L/R rider control(and left the F/B to the computer). 
That thing though would allow you to do the rolling motions that you use for full rider control everywhere but in chicanes. 
I couldn't see any mention of analogue - guessing it is but wouldn't buy one without knowing for sure.

Not that I could use it - I'm a floor dweller - would have to mount it vertically on a frame(which I have considered doing with a pedal for the back brake).
...and I don't need it.  Got my wee wiggly pad stick for the rider.
If I was a chair dweller who'd run out of fingers and needed an extra d-pad though I'd be hot to trot for this.   :)
Damn, now I'm off thinking about I-War2 and lateral thruster control, that'd free up a thumbstick that'd be handy for the targeting system.  :P
