    It's a super satisfying mechanism :)

    Interesting that it gives you Surge, Sway and Heave - different to the usual 3DOF in a typical rig build.

    I think its a really smart design, surge and heave are 2 of the most immersive axes imo

    It uses belt drive so should be fairly quiet

    For position feedback it may be possible to use encoders or linear pots or counting lines drawn on the belts themselves !
