LeanGP Simulator is a new peripheral that aims to give users an immersive motorcycle experience and is currently on Kickstarter.
If you have ever been to an arcade you would of seen plenty of videogames that allowed you to climb onto a model motorcycle and get right into the action. Taking that experience into the home has however proven to be a tricky task but now LeanGP Simulator has taken to Kickstarter with a solution that is sure to make any player happy.
The idea for LeanGP Simulator came from the lack of peripherals available to players who enjoy motorcycle titles. Car titles have a number of different options available including seats, steering wheels, pedals, structures and more to create a realistic driving environment within the home. With that as the driving force for the team behind LeanGP Simulator, the idea come to life and the product has become a reality offering an immersive way to enjoy motorcycle titles like never before in the home.
The unit is a fully adjustable, foldable and lightweight motorcycle that is compatible with all major platforms including PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and is ideal for virtual reality (VR) headsets such as Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR. Once more the unit is designed to work from the get go meaning there is no need to set up any drivers as LeanGP Simulator is plug-and-play ready. This ensures that players can jump into their favorite motorcycle videogames in no time and become fully engaged in the moment like never before.
One additional feature that the LeanGP Simulator has is the option to use a mobile device as an extra screen, offering more information on the unit rather than on the screen, creating a more realistic motorcycle experience. Players will be able to create their own designs as well via the application allowing them to create their ideal setup.
At the time of writing the Kickstarter for the LeanGP Simulator has already beaten it’s funding goal of £17,771 (GBP) and still has a full 28 days to go until the campaign ends. There are a number of different funding options available with a few remaining spaces to pick up a LeanGP Simulator for only €899 (Euro) with the next options being €999 and €2,499 if you want to get a special design, ideal for event use.
