From Mercogliano the creative team able to create accessories and controllers for the customizable SimRacing for people with disabilities.
To be able to participate in a rally race also a disabled young man. It has succeeded, even if only in the virtual version of the competition, a team of young designers and engineers of Mercogliano, in the province of Avellino, that thanks to a brilliant intuition, the latest technologies in the Field Of 3d printer and a A lot of determination, they succeeded in the enterprise.
The company is the 3Drap And it works in the field of prototyping and engineering, and that in a few clicks has managed to create a system of customization of devices for the game. Specifically, the project, which will be presented at the next “Best Practices Award” in December, has been given as a goal to create specific peripherals For the Sim Racing intended for handicapped.
What is it?
Sim Racing is a highly realistic simulation of car racing that falls within the defined field of e-sports and that needs a particular hardware rather complex. It goes from the ergonomic steering wheel to the structure of the seat to the virtual vehicle pedal system. They are well 50 the original products, between modifications and accessories, that the company has managed to give life and that today sends in about 80 countries all over the world, making the Sim Racing its core-business.
And it is precisely the field of accessories at the center of the project, born from the need to bridge the chronic lack of alternative systems suitable for disabled players. The creators of 3DRap have in fact devised a system of controlling practical and ergonomic, to be installed easily on the back of the player’s hand, replacing in practice the commands destined to the legs. The controller, completely printed through a 3D printer, is equipped with two levers that allow to replace in a practical and intuitive way the pedal of the accelerator and the brake, managed by the thumb, even adjusting the intensity Acceleration and braking. Via Libera to the tests then, carried out by people with disabilities enrolled in theAsd Experience, a non-profit sports association that has as its mission to insert the drivers affected by various forms of disability in the world of motoring, Especially of karting.
