Foldable VR Racing Rig: Autobox, Roll out!

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  September 9, 2014


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):

This is also veriix’s racing rig:

What the? How the? Here’s what the how the. First you lift the lid…

Then you flip out the base that holds the chair and pedals…

Then you flip out the stand holding the steering wheel and the switchbox…

And finally you put the lid back down. Behold, the power of love!

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.
