Realistic, exciting and intensive thrills 

Modern video games are more realistic than ever, letting players feel as though they really are racing cars or playing sports. Growing numbers of games include driver's seats and cockpits that actually tilt and move along with the action on the screen.

For example, this car game machine lets players feel as though they really are steering a car. Both the driver and the car are inclined or rotated to the right or left as the driver steers, with THK's LM Guides, Ball Screws and Link Balls being used in the rotary mechanisms. Compact but rigid against large forces involved and capable of moving smoothly, THK's products give players the feel of real driving.
