Back-seat drivers? Racing fans put in the driver’s seat of a modified remote controlled toy car.
Always wanted to be a race car driver? Nissan makes it easy for anyone to be the fastest driver on earth with the new game Voice Driver Cup. Created to promote the new Fairlady 370Z, the 2013 version of the 2-seater sports car, the game pits drivers against each other using only their voice. Instead of driving a remote controlled car with an electric controller, voice volume becomes the controller. ‘Drivers’ can yell into an iPhone app or into their computer microphone to alter the speed of their car- the louder their voice, the faster the car wil drive.
Nissan is hosting the 1st Voice Driver ‘Grand Prix’ at their company headquarters in Japan on Saturday, November 1st; fans can come to the 100m track to participate in person. Then, on November 17th, Nissan will host a global Grand Prix, allowing anyone in the world to compete without leaving their desk.
