OutRun, an arcade game released in the 80’s, was a dream come true for arcade-gamers, which made them jump with utmost joy. The driving game was a rage and came injected with new hardware in the form of a moving cabinet, ground-breaking graphics and music clubbed with the flexibility to pick the soundtrack and route. Taking the retro-era experience to an all new level is Garnet Hertz. The contemporary artist has given the same cabinet an overhaul and pumped it with a motorized life.
OutRun AR project is an electric golf car, which has been shaped like the OutRun cabinet. A player can navigate through the game instead of staying stuck at the same place. It comes fitted with ingenious software and cameras that will robotically display the route in 8-bit rendering. Image of the route is produced on the screen that makes maneuvering easy and keeps the rider safe. OutRun will help you experience the charm of driving a car on a real-life track. It will send thrill-chills and make the user slip in a state of pure bliss. Don’t worry, the coupe can only touch a top speed of 13 miles/hour but this won’t lower the overall fun-coated experience.
Apart from the gaming part, Garnet wants to develop it into a medically inclined unit, which can be used by people suffering from disabilities. This will shower game-based therapies, helping disabled in a positive way. The technology can also be used while crafting wheelchairs. OutRun AR project will make sure that it ranks high on the entertainment level and pumps necessary adrenaline rush.
