Image of the Day: Giant robot arm turned racing simulator

Say, you know what I bet a giant, robotic arm would be pretty good at? Shaking someone around who is playing an arcade game so they feel like they're really moving. Apparently, Paolo Robuffo Giordano and his peers at Germany's Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics agree, and that's exactly what they did.

The person in the chair above plays an F1 fun and games, however. The German team of researchers is using the arm-simulator marriage to study the way that our bodies experience motion.
