If you haven’t already heard of it, Anki’s Overdrive is basically a high-tech smartphone and A.I. controlled slot car racing set with customizable tracks. For the record, they’re unbelievably cool for what they are. And they’re about to get a whole lot cooler with the brand’s upcoming release of a Fast & Furious Edition Overdrive set.
In a partnership with the film franchise, this newest version of Anki’s Overdrive is geared toward fans of all things Fast & Furious. This new set has all the same bells and whistles as the normal edition – WiFi connectivity, A.I. controlled opponents, customizable slot-free tracks, etc. – but it has the added benefit of featuring two of the coolest cars from the 8th film in the Fast & Furious franchise. Those cars are Hobbs’ International MXT armored truck and Dominic Torreto’s Ice Charger. They also come with two new virtual weapons: a rocket launcher and a grappling hook, respectively. Best of all, this $170 set is fully standalone – meaning you don’t have to own any other Overdrive editions in order to use this one on its own. You can sign up with the brand for release date details.
