We have covered motion simulator companies before, generally due to their presence at tradeshows like IAAPA. At previous IAAPA events, one US-based company by the name of Eleetus has shown off their equipment for commercial buyers to grab and they are in the news with some new software for their hardware platform. That hardware supports either racing or aviation software, with appropriate changes in the controls depending on the setup. They also support both residential and commercial sales; for residential this becomes something like a super cabinet for specific PC games.
A list of games for the Motorsport model can be found here, which includes a number of popular home racing games like GRID, Colin McRae’s DiRT series, F1 2010-2013, a Need For Speed title and more. Now they have another big name to add to that repertoire – the popular Project CARS. To promote that addition, the company issued the press release you’ll find below. HOWEVER, it should be noted that most titles are currently available for residential use only and at the moment that includes Project CARS. I asked about what is available and the response I received was: “Current titles available with commercial licenses include iRacing, rFactor, and rFactor 2.“
While I am not certain how much these particular units go for, comparable units from other companies tend to fall between the $20k-$60k range. What are your thoughts on these kinds of motion simulators?
Here is a promo video to show how the Eleetus units work:
