In this augmented reality racing game demo, players zoom around a track in real-life go-karts and pick up virtual power-ups to boost their kart’s speed or slow down the competition.
The virtual power-ups are generated by a Microsoft HoloLens augmented reality headset on each player. The speed boosts (and reductions) are provided by some electronics I created that extend an existing go-kart system with this functionality.
I recruited a talented team including a 3D animator, video game music composer, and programmer. Together with my electronics and radio communications knowledge, we built everything you see in the demo video.
