In today’s racing games are so well drawn and road cars that they not differ from their counterparts in real world, and even surpass their schedule. But in electric vehicle Outrun all based on a diametrically opposite principle. After driving it for the real world is like an eight-bit video game world.
No super-modern graphics, no super-innovate controls in computer games and video games will not bring the pleasure and the experiences of immersion in the game, we have experienced during the eight-bit games on consoles. In particular, and in a simple race with a very conventional and quite elementary graphics control’s this nostalgia and established the concept of electric Outrun, created both a scientist and an artist Garnet Hertz. This car is a hybrid of golfcar and video games.
By the order Hertz created a special software, convert images, obtained from a video camera installed in front of the electric Outrun, in eight bit graphics. Of course, it converts it in real time. So a person who is behind the wheel of Outrun, will see on the screen set in front of him exactly what he would see through the usual car windshield, that’s just inherent in the eight-game graphics.
Moreover, electric car Outrun has GPS-navigation system, which displays a screen area of a map of all of the same eight-racing arcade games. Of course, this car will never be released into production! But as a fun ride, overturning video games and the games in them upside down, Outrun become very popular. After all, games are usually copied real life, but here, on the contrary, the real life – video games!
