Having entered the world of virtual reality last summer I decided to design and construct my own sim rig as I could not find anything commercially available that had all the features I wanted.
I designed my system for flexibility and comfort. It can be used for both racing games and flight sims. The seat frame can be adjusted forwards and backwards so when I am not using the steering wheel and pedals, I can move the seat back over 30 cm which allows me to stretch my legs while still having access to the HOTAS, mouse and gamepad.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
