Vesaro & Cobra Simulation recently featured on the Gadget Show with an outstanding display of pure automotive racing adreniline. Combing the elegant sleek quality of the new v-spec rig with spherical projection screen the Cobra Curved Display.
Nevil Slade Managing Director from Vesaro said "The Cobra Curved display enables us to offer an immersive projection experience that compliments the current display solution available from Vesaro. We wanted a projection display system that would adapt well to our existing simulators and this solution was the perfect fit. The combination of the Curved Display and our existing technology really makes for something special that we are pleased to start offering to our customers."
Alexander Bradley managing director at Cobra Simulation said "We share many synergies with Vesaro in product development, ambition and target markets. The V-spec rig takes motion technology to a whole new level. Working in partnership for the gadget show viewers were treated to a worlds first in visual and professional automotive motion simulation. So we thought it only fair to share to tech fueled detail"
Introduction to the Vesaro system
Vesaro build advanced modular simulation systems. The system is based around an ultra strong hand crafted centre core that can be adapted from the core system up to a full triple screen motion physics simulator or upgraded to feature the Cobra Curved Display. There are thousands of possible rig setups making the Vesaro system the world’s first truly modular commercial grade simulator system.
This modular flexibility allows you to start with the core rig and expand the complexity of your setup as you need. The rig is made from high quality ultra durable construction enabling us to confidently offer a 10 year warranty on all Vesaro constructed components. As a company we believe that your rig should last and our manufacturing process is designed for just that.
The rigs allow you to build a specific system for your needs with the option to choose the type of finish, different steering setups including support for Logitech, Fanatec and Thrustmaster, an advanced Tactile Feedback System, the D-BOX motion physics system, THX 5.1 surround sound audio, a single and triple display system and more.
Designed for PC, XBOX and Playstation 3 the Vesaro system offers a perfect mix of modular flexibility, beautiful stylish design and ultra stable engineering. So we caught up with Nevil Slade Vesaro's Managing Director to get a detailed breakdown of the new V-spec motion rig.

D-BOX Motion physics system A Multi-Sensorial Revolution Motion editing is a new art form, a new sophisticated discipline where art meets technology meets gaming. It leads to the rise of MFX, a multi-sensorial revolution in gaming. Action becomes motion. Sounds become motion. Events become motion.Brace yourself for an entirely new, unforgettably immersive experience. All of this is made possible by the patented, award-winning technology.
Only D-BOX offers MFX using 3 types of intelligent movement (subtle pitch, roll and heave) to move you gently forwards and backwards, from side to side and up & down. Combine that with the D-BOX-encoded intelligent vibrations and it all comes together to create the most amazing, all-encompassing simulation experience ever.
