Racing games such as Mario Kart and Wipeout feature some pretty insane courses. Designer Malte Jehmlich and his team wanted to recreate that for real, rather than building a digital world, deciding to drive a real car through a real track.
It still plays out like an arcade game — you even sit down at a proper arcade cabinet and everything — but you're guiding a remote-controlled car though a track that's in the same room as you. It's an idea that's been done elsewhere: Disney World has an Indiana Jones-themed RC car game at its multilevel arcade, DisneyQuest. Jehmlich's Racer, on the other hand, is all about speed, and features a neat two-story track.
