Room Racers, 2010

With: Jelte Timmer

The object detection is completely real-time, checkpoints can be placed to define the route, players can drop in or out of the game at any time, there is a combat game mode, in-game menu, HUD, etc. The system uses a pc, modified camera and a video projector (they're getting really small and cheap, fast!) First shown at Discovery Festival 2010 in Nemo, Amsterdam. Now at the Arcade exhibition.
