This study proposes a sports simulation device with various harmonics generation. The proposed system is composed of 6 degrees of freedom simulator devices and three types of sports simulation such as walking, snowboard, and jet-ski. In this research, every joint movement is designed with a crank-and-slider mechanism, which is efficient for generating continuous curvature smoothly. Contrary to the conventional spatial simulator with linear actuators, harmonics generation and its spatial combinations become the crucial issue in this research. The harmonic pattern in each joint is modelled for generating smooth curvatures that are also superposed for achieving overall motions. In addition, the targeted motions of sports simulations have different physical factors of periodic gait motion, frictionless surface, and buoyant effects, which are respectively designed by integrating three dimensional graphics information.
