The increasing number of automakers that have dipped their fingers in the augmented reality experience bucket have clearly found a new way to catch the attention of their prospective customers.
In promoting the 2011 Scion tC, Scion has thought of a way to get people behind the wheel of a tC through their new interactive game called ‘Take on the Machine’.
The game consists of driving a virtual tC with a virtual steering wheel with the objective being to avoid all of the obstacles throughout the city to achieve the fastest possible time. It’s a little tricky in the beginning, especially because of how the steering wheel works, but once you get the hang of it, it becomes a heck of a lot of fun to do, especially if you can play it for shots with your friends.
If you’re not into the whole hi-tech virtual steering wheel mode, there’s an option to play the game using your computer’s keyboard. Not as fun as the former, but definitely less complicated.
Hop on over to the Scion website and see if you have what it takes to “take on the machine”.
