OutRun: Augmented Reality Driving Video Game

Posted by TurtleGirl On August - 5 - 2011

Strange looking, but for real is Garnet Hertz’s augmented reality based OutRun project. Which involves combining SEGA’s classic game with an electric golf cart.

This allows players to navigate their way around real life courses using only arcade consoles.Garnet Hertz is an informatics researcher at the University of California, customizing the car with cameras and software that can look in front of the car to automatically reproduce the route on the game’s cabin screen.

The map can be seen in the same 8-bit rendering that you’d see on the original OutRun. The cart can only do a top speed of 13mph and Hertz and his colleagues are hoping their technology can be used to develop game based therapies for disabled users or to create similar AR based wheelchairs.
 


 

It sounds like an absolutely amazing idea. Hopefully we’ll see more great projects from Hertz. Take a hop, skip and jump to check out the trailer.
