New Generation Virtual Viewing Simulation Product

Share Article

On 11/11/2008, "Virtual Concept" released the RS1 racing simulator at the Performance Racing Industry show in Orlando. Based on their new "Force 180" hardware platform, the RS1 brings virtual auto racing to a whole new level. The RS1's most significant feature is Virtual Concept's' new proprietary patent "Immersion Screen" design and technology, which gives racers a true 180 degree field of vision. This unique feature sets our product apart from the flat screen models more commonly in use today. Multiple high-output shakers increase the realism by reproducing vibrations. Add the RS1 control set, and driving through a simulated bend at 150 mph will never be the same.

The Force 180 platform focuses on realism, not looks. Our tag line states just that.

The RS1 is available in the Xtreme package. Included with the base RS1 Xtreme package is a 900 degree force feedback wheel and 3 frame-mounted pedals, an 8-gate H-pattern shifter and a functional dashboard with LED shift lights, a gear selection indicator, and several programmable buttons. The VC Sims RS1 Xtreme is a turn-key package featuring a high-end PC and additional peripherals. Our product is software independent, meaning our customers use whatever simulation software they want to enjoy the experience on our simulator.The Xtreme package can be found in detail at http://www.vcsims.com.

Producing high-quality products for a reasonable price is a high priority at Virtual Concept. Expensive and unnecessary cosmetic additions are left out of the mix, leaving more room for features that improve the simulation experience.

"The Force 180 platform focuses on realism, not looks. Our tag line states just that. "It doesn't need to look like one. It only needs to feel like one." At Virtual Concept we want our multi-platform simulators to provide a great experience for even the most seasoned professionals. At the same time, we ensure that our units stay in a reasonable price range. The RS1 is a perfect example of this. We are very excited about our products and company direction," says Ron Larabie, President of Virtual Concept.

Virtual Concept's varied team of experts makes all of this possible. Virtual Concept's aviation experts, who have experience dealing with multi-million dollar aircraft, ensure that all aspects of the simulator are top of the line. Their automotive experts and licensed race car driver add their input to product design to ensure that everything has a realistic feel.

"Having driven simulations for years I always felt that I was driving from the back seat. I wanted to create a product whereby I would feel immersed into the scene. With this idea I invented and created our VC Sims immersion screen for which we currently have a registered patent," states Jean-Pierre Rivest, Inventor and Vice President of Concept and Design for Virtual Concept. In the 2nd quarter of 2009, Virtual Concept will be adding the VC Sims FS1 flight simulator to their product line-up. Although details have not been fully released, the FS1 control set will feature a multi-function joystick, separate throttle control, rudder pedals, and several other flight related features. It does not stop there; the company is also planning to release special edition packages of the RS1 in 2009. For future updates, be sure to visit the news section at http://www.vcsims.com.
