Industrial Grade Robotic Rollercoaster

Posted 24 Nov 2004 at 20:08 UTC by The Swirling Brain Share This

Space.com has an article about a Industrial Grade Robotic Rollercoaster. Robocoaster G2 looks like a rollercoaster with a robotic arm like those that work on automotive factory lines with a few seats for passengers. It can spin and swing customers all while going down a rollercoaster track. What seems to be the most interesting is that the program that guides the movements of the seat rack can be changed for each ride allowing an easy ride or an extreme ride. We've reported on the previous version of a stationary robocoaster that runs on the Windows operating system before. I wonder if this new G2 version also runs on the "blue screen of death" Windows Operating system like the previous one did?
