Imagine uma corrida de fórmula 1 na sua console ou na TV mas a corrida que voce está virtualmente participando, está realmente acontecendo…A empresa holandesa iOpener Media propoe, com uso de GPS diferencial, colocar objetos reais no mundo virtual. Vejam trechos do post do GPS Obsessed:
“iOpener Media from the Netherlands has already gone a step beyond, working on bring real world objects into virtual environments. Imagine this: you’re racing the world’s best F1 drivers on your PC or HDTV screen in a race that’s actually really happening at that moment somewhere in the world. Incredible to imagine, but that’s exactly what iOpener Media is working on.
By pulling GPS data in real-time from racing events, and pumping it into compatible game consoles, you can sit and race the best drivers in the world from the comfort of your living room-in the same rice they’re currently driving. iOpener Media has received funding from the European Space Agency and claims it’ll have its first games on the market by this September, as soon as they find suitable partners to develop on top of their technological platform.”
