Intense, believable excitement and thrills 

Modern video games are more realistic than ever, letting players feel as though they really were 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 were steering a car. Both the driver and the car are inclined or rotated to the right or left as the driver steers, and THK's LM Guides, Ball Screws and Link Balls are used in the rotary mechanism. Compact but rigid against large forces and capable of moving smoothly, THK's products give players the feel of really driving.
