Guy builds his own single-seat thrill ride

Daniel de Bruin built a homemade thrill ride that looks a bit like if The Zipper merged with a camera jib on steroids. The video says the machine reacts to the rider's biometrics, but it doesn't really show how a rider's heart rate changes ride speed.

At any rate, it's still pretty cool and could be lots of fun with the right VR accompaniment.

  2. Hm, i was thinking you were talking about a different kind of thrill ride :sweat:

  3. Strapping yourself to a trebuchet. Yeah thats a good idea.

  4. As someone prone to motion sickness, roller coasters rarely evoked any of those things in me (Exceptions: coasters which roll backwards, and "simulated motion" rides).

    I just get a rather pleasant adrenaline rush.
