Description

For acquisition of projects for the digital agency vriction two tech demos were created. Both take the game mechanics of a slot car racing track and bring those into the virtual and the augmented reality.

The virtual reality version of the game takes place in a beautiful, stereoscopic living room, so the player can completely dive into the experience and feels like in another place. It even works on mobile VR solutions like the Gear VR.

The augmented reality version projects the slot car racing track anywhere you like with the help of a customizable marker. This can mean having the track on a table, at the wall in front of a sticker that works as a marker or on top of an ad in a magazine.
