Came up with this idea today while riding and someone chatting it would be great to feel the cobblestones. I’m sure they were joking - but thought, this would be a really neat addition for the high-end Zwift user.
Not allowing one to feel the cobblestones, but actually allowing users to have a platform that integrate with virtual actuators so that our cycle could mimic the gradient we were riding. While Smart Trainers do their best to add/remove resistance accordingly - different muscle groups are still being used in uphill climbs as riders need to tilt forward.
Clearly this isn’t for everyone - but would be nice to see Zwift had a method to interface with actuators (similar to virtual car racing set-ups) to allow for this true enhancement/extension of the virtual world.
I’m sure more than a few riders would drop $$$ to add this geeky type of a platform.
