• Anki Drive Promises to be The Future of Racing Games

You’d think that with the upcoming release of Gran Turismo 6 and Forza 5 on both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, a new era of car racing games is about to be born.

On some level, that’s accurate. But there might be another developer that’s looking to stake that ’next generation racing game’ title all to itself.

We may not know of Anki at this point, but the start-up company is determined to make the kind of waves that’ll get everybody’s attention. How is it going to do that?

Well, the company is developing a new racing game experience that blends radio-controlled cars and artificial intelligence, all wrapped up in an iPhone app. There’s also a mat, smart cars with sensors, and Bluetooth accessories, which pretty much goes to show the detail and sophistication of this game.

In a nutshell, the game works in such a way that an iPhone app is used to control the RC cars, allowing them to perform numerous tricks and functions that belies what a standard RC car is capable of doing.

But the best part about this new game is that it’s still in its infancy, which means that we can expect more developments to arrive in due time.

For now, though, enjoy all the teaser videos Anki has released for the game. If for nothing else, these videos will definitely get your attention.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
