Ok maybe this is a bad idea but being a skier from a northern state I tend to get thinking during winter. If the really advanced steering controllers used in high end driving simulations can be programmed to give steering wheel feedback, what stops us from making a slalom driving simulator. There’s obviously no replacement for the real thing, but it’s an interesting thought experiment to explore.
Programming the steering feel of different boats steering feel shouldn’t be too hard and you could even maybe add something for rudder adjustments too.
There’s one snag that I see and that’s how to have a computer simulate how the skier will respond if you are driving in sync with them or driving a poor path.
If winter is only half over and my ideas are already getting this wack well, winter needs to get over sooner.
