Welcome to GT RIDE, the multi-platform game: Similar to an artist´s light painting, you can build magnificent freeways with one fluent motion in mid air.
One of the ideas that was intriguing right from the beginning was the concept of a racing game. At the same time we wanted to integrate users and let them create something that was really worth sharing.
The movement of the mobile device was to be calculated to form one giant race circuit. Once built, the user can drive on this track straight away by tilting the device.
The accelerometer and gyroscope are key in the creation of a 3D track, while kinect tracking took care of this part when it came to the installation.
The game was played on 9 HD monitors, with kinect tracking enabling visitors to create a track just by moving their hand around. The installation was featured at the IAA Frankfurt and Geneva Auto Salon shows, and will make an appearance at the Interauto Moskau.
