Redditor veriix wanted to have an Oculus Rift racing simulation setup, but he also wanted to stay married to his wife. So he gave up on his dream of having a conventional racing rig… and built something way cooler. Here’s veriix’s racing rig (with friend for scale):

I’m not sure if the center console is from a car – note the cup holder – but veriix did say that the hand brake used to be in a Mini Cooper. Drive to Imgur to see veriix’s 98-image-thick build log.
