    Symdeck full motion for Forza on Xbox



    Here's a video showing 'the corkscrew' being experienced in 3D on an Xbox. Some console games output the car telemetry and with our new control box you can experience full motion on an Xbox One or PS4/5 on the Symdeck modular system. These games include Forza Motorsport 7, Forza Horizon 4 and 5, Project Cars 1 and 2, F1 2016-2021. Experience pitch, roll, heave, surge, sway and traction loss and even our speed variable fans will work! Use the Symdeck PC versions if you only intend to use these games on console or use the Symdeck console versions and switch them to PC mode to experience the full effects with these games. Symdeck 'Trumotion' controller coming soon! www.symdeck.com

    Symdeck sound test



    We are often asked how quiet our motion system is so here's a video demonstrating it. I've put the game sound on first for reference. www.symdeck.com

    Buyed "traction loss" extension from symdeck few months ago. Great addition to my "old" Atomic A3 with VR setup. Principal use RFACTOR2.
    Works perfectly after a little setup in simtools with Symdeck instructions.
    Good contact With Simon of Symdeck.

    Finally after years of thinking about the best way to implement it and over 6 months of tweaking hardware and SimTools settings I've finally got the sixth DOF to work. With the fans, bass shakers, seatbelt, 5.1 surround sound and VR I think it's worth calling it 7 DOF!

    Symseat is back!





    A simple but effective concept, tilting the seat pad and moving the side bolsters, replicates the sustained lateral forces felt when cornering and will be uniquely available for PC, Xbox and PlayStation.


    Used on it's own or in conjunction with Symbelt it offers great immersion for sim racing.


    More details coming soon at www.symdeck.com

    Being creative is a blessing and a curse. Not content with reworking the sway effect in the seat we're now looking at adding the surge sensation. It pushes on your shoulder blades which is where you feel it. What you can't see is that when you brake it actually retracts giving you the feeling of being thrown forward.
