Real Life Outrun

August 4, 2011

We all remember the original 8bit Outrun Game from 1986. I remember playing it until my fingers were bleeding.

So what would it be like if you could have this in real life? That is what the people at the University of California Irvine ask themselves and they created a system that, with the help of cameras and some customized software, looks in front of the vehicle and reproduces a map of what lies ahead of you onto the screen in 8bit rendering just like Outrun.

All you have to do now is follow the route. Simply awesome.
