Video: Robot arm takes engineers for a virtual reality Formula 1 ride  A team of researchers at Germany's Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics have turned a KUKA KR 500 robot arm into the ultimate Formula 1 simulator ride.

Outfitting the six-axis, half-ton lifter with a force-feedback steering wheel, pedals, video projector and curved screen, the newly-christened CyberMotion Simulator lets scientists throw a virtual Ferrari F2007 race car into the turns, while the cockpit whips around with up to 2 Gs of equal-and-opposite Newtonian force.
