Anki DRIVE: AI Robotics Racing Game

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Entertainment, Tech

Many of you may have grown up playing with slot car sets, but these days, kids have computers and smartphones to keep them occupied every waking moment of the day. Anki DRIVE fuses modern technology with the slot car sets of yesteryear for a completely awesome, AI infused racing game that guys of all ages are sure to love.

The track is made from a vinyl material that has been embedded with a special type of ink that will communicate with the toy cars, allowing users to control the vehicles remotely from their iOS devices through the brand’s app. The cars were designed by Harold Belker (the same man who designed the classic 1996 Batmobile), and have even been outfitted with artificial intelligence that will adapt to different scenarios, making the races increasingly difficult to win. There are 4 different model cars (2 included with the set), all with different attributes, and all with the ability to fire weapons at your opponents to slow them down on the track. The Anki DRIVE race car set is set to release on October 23rd, and will retail for a $199. Watch the video below to see this thing in action. [Purchase]
