Real world racing car games have been pretty stagnant for a long time. Basically we had tracks, grooves, little cars tied to the tracks and that was it. Oh and maybe a few curls and leaps to spice things up a bit. But now there’s a new game in town, and it’s bang up to date, 21st century style.The all new Anki DRIVE Starter Kit is one of the world’s most intelligent toy car racing games. Developed by a team of ex robotics experts this game puts the brain back into games and makes them actually fun to play again. What makes it special is it uses the processing power from your smartphone to provide extra functionality as well as just racing around a track.
The cars with the kit are intelligent and know their way around the provided track. What’s more, the more times you drive around the track the more your cars will learn and evolve. You can also unlock different features and weapons for your cars as you progress. Kind of like leveling up in real life.
Up to 4 cars can race on the track at the same time, and you control each car with an iOS device (Android app coming out soon). And of course it’s multiplayer, so your friends can also control a car. One of the really cool things is that any cars which are not being controlled by a human will be auto controlled by AI. Instant challenges, even if you’re on your own. The Anki DRIVE Starter Kit is available for $289.95 via Amazon .
