    I keep experimenting with bowden cables thanks to @SeatTime's inspiration. Here is my attempt at a G-Head system for acceleration forces only. I've incorporated this into my overall setup and it is a welcome addition aside from being a bit cumbersome. As you can see, it uses a high strength single RC Servo and some bowden cables, and 3d printed mounts for my Oculus CV1. It may look a bit sluggish in the video but it seems perfect for simulating the acceleration force on your neck. I did go through many mount designs and the hardest part was allowing for full head motion while driving and also ensuring that the surge forces pulling my head back did not alter my view while driving. Fun project!
