Okay, we all know that one friend who just has to have everything Apple not matter how overpriced? Every piece of clothing has to have a designer label and all of the matching accessories. You’d never find a store brand item his fridge and all the booze simple must be top shelf. — Hey everyone has some redeeming characteristics. —

DrivePod is truly the Apple Watch, or Beats Headphones of the sim racing world. The far more money than brains type would be my only guess. This thing isn’t a motion rig which is what I first thought it was. No, it’s defining feature is that the seat slides back and forth. I’ll let the video description below baffle you as it has me since I first read it.

Okay, so like a sim rig but worse in about every conceivable way? This has got to be someone’s hairbrained attempt to launder money or something right?

I hope sim racing isn’t heading for some kind of crash.
Other much, much better stuff
