Beta Testers Wanted for iOpener Real Time Racing
This new technology is based on the integration of real 'objects' into the virtual world, and the possibility of playing in real-time, live against proffesional drivers. The testers should are given the chance to experience the iOpener’s technology in mid-June, 2009 prior to public launch later this year.
iOpener Media’s patented technology works via an ‘Orange Box’ placed inside a racing car which then feeds the telemetry and GPS data to gamers via internet without lag. Gamers will be able to join games and test their driving skills in 1-on-1 and 1-to-many during a live race.
“We know that gamers and race enthusiasts have been waiting to be able to race against professional drivers in real time. It’s actually a very complicated thing to do but we’ve cracked it. Now we’re ready to put the technology in the hands of some of the best race gamers to see what they can do with it,” said Andy Lürling, CEO of iOpener Media.
Besides injecting real race cars driven by real drivers on real tracks into games, including inserting special developed algorythms for an optimal race experience, the iOpener technology is used for several applications in the motorsports industries, e.g. race/safety control, visualization, and driver training.
