    I have an idea of simply putting my ipad on a pillow and pressing it using it as a throttle pedal
    I know that the ipad can measure z axis but there are no apps out there that offer a way of using the z axis as an input for games in this case beamng, any alternatives or suggestions?

    Edit: doing this wirelessly over wifi like the beamng control app

    i´d rather save up and buy a propper G25 / G27 wheel. It costs alot of money sure, but you will definetly have a better feeling with pedals under your feet, than your iPad..

    Also if you are using the ipad, make sure to wash your feet before you do.. otherwise you have quite a smelly iPad
