Previous dorkbotSF presenter and dorkbotsocal overlord Garnet Hertz outdoes himself again with Garnet-enhanced Outrun, an arcade driving game that he modified to take GPS info from an iPhone and render it on the screen. To make it even more challenging and dangerous, the cabinet will also be drivable!
And as a future feature, if there are pedestrians with iPhones hopefully there’s not much latency in rendering them so they don’t get hit 🙂
This is what the cabinet looks like:
