Engineers at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, in Tübingen, Germany took a KUKA KR 500 6-axis robot arm and used it to simulate the travel of a Ferrari F2007 F1 race car at the speedway of Monza, Italy. The purpose, Paolo Robuffo Giordano says, is not to create an awesome game, but to research how the human body responds to motion:
"A motion simulation system is a fundamental tool to understand how humans experience the sensation of motion," he says. "By running suitable experiments, one can gain better insights into the cognitive processes of the human brain."
