Maybe you like racing games. Many people do, and some buy an off-the-shelf wheel and pedals to enhance the experience. For some though, this isn’t nearly good enough, and in this case, Redditer Veriix decided to build a fold-away rig to use to get approval from the rest of the family.
Besides the “dissapearing” feature, made possible by cleverly placed brackets and hinges, it features an extensive array of controls. The hand brake is from a Mini Cooper, and can be switched between analog and digital, depending, I suppose, on how the game being played handles this input. It has 3 pedals for those that can virtually drive a stick shift, and a nice-looking racing seat with a decent amount of wiring underneath.
All that in addition to a cup holder. I linked the abbreviated version of this build earlier, but if you want to see it, here’s the full (gigantic) build log. It should be noted that this build was inspired by this Gran Turismo-themed “Dark Chest of Wonders.” Both have their own interesting features, so if you’re considering a build like this, you should check that one out too.

As this was originally posted on the Reddit Oculus “subreddit,” and is called a “VR racing rig,” it is certainly geared toward use with a virtual reality headset. On the other hand, a TV could rest on the front of this chest, or a projector could also be used. After all, how would one use the cup holder with the headset on?
