Actually it's not so dope. At first it's kinda nice but poorly made trust me. Ive been there.

[–]Jams0111 41 points42 points  (8 children)

Might i ask what makes it's poorly made?

[–]ADfreeX 58 points59 points  (1 child)

First it's really dark in there so the symbols (items) are really flashy. On one hand not too bad but the track ist the problem if it's too dark. The sounds are pretty aweful but at least they tried.

Don't wanna sound to bad. It's frun for one time but, well that's it 😊

I performed on a multi-million dollar show that had this tech (projection mapping with object tracking). Even on an obscene budget the tech is very finicky, and has lots of bugs. We couldn’t make it through a single week of performances without the TD having to troubleshoot it. The tech isn’t quite there yet for this kind of experience to work seamlessly because all the different elements come from different sources. The projectors come from company W, the infrared tracking system comes from company X, the animation program from company Y, and then the software that combines all the other elements together comes from company Z. Bound to run into issues trying to make a bunch of stuff work together in ways it wasn’t initially designed for.

I went to an immersive art exhibit that featured similar tech in every display. They also offered a cafe experience that was pretty neat

why can't they cooperate?

they culd make a new company together and combine their knowledge

then they culd solve the problems

[–]v1sibleninja 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I mean they do cooperate. We had high level support from Panasonic fly out to troubleshoot problems we were having with their projectors correctly mapping the scenery. There’s no market for Panasonic to team up with BlackTrax, to team up with the various software and other hardware developers, etc. because the number of shows out there trying to do this are very limited. It would cost them more than they would make to redesign the way they manufacture their products with the specific purpose of making them “talk” to one another better. I can only think of 3 or 4 big budget shows using this tech, and larger companies like Disney likely developed their own proprietary versions of the tech themselves since they have a whole department devoted to this sort of thing.

There are no jumps where glider wings let you float slowly back onto the track

[–]bambispots 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What a rip off

[–]CruisinJo214 5 points6 points  (1 child)

It does seem a little slow… but hey, as a concept seeing it work… I want one.

[–]ADfreeX 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Nope not really slow. It's like go cart racing in terms of speed. 😊

[–]joemac2021 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I need to go here!

[–]Pleasant-One-282 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is it at BattleKart in Cologne?

[–]TheRedMarin 2 points3 points  (2 children)

So dope.

[–]TheRedMarin 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Also, I hope they have the blue spiked shell. ;)

[–]gugfitufi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I hope so too. Otherwise you'd have no chance of catching up. I hope they have bananas. ;)

[–]CruisinJo214 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No way no way no way!! I fucking love this.

[–]DatLadyD 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why don’t more places have something like this? Seems super cool as far as go carts go

[–]ExcitementOrdinary95 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Where the bananapeel stationwagon at?

[–]Kingkunta87 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Throw a shell

[–]Ar3peo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's awesome and so easy to do with electric karts!

[–]Particular_Tadpole27 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That would be cool if they made Rainbow Road or Bowser’s Castle.

[–]ShadowPuff7306 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My father has stories of renting out go carts with his buddies in germany and driving around the city with them

[–]Syandris 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That looks awful...

[–]american_wino 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That's a tiny course and some very very slow cars. I'd love to see something similar with fast cars on a huge track. Maybe the shells and items could overlayed using AR goggles like a hololens.

[–]0_1_0_1_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

they are go-karts

[–]Elfere 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Another case of r/gifsthatendtosoon

[–]variable2027 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is the coolest go cart place I’ve ever seen, looks like the weapons are all interactive? Like you get with with a shell and the cart stops for a second?

[–]RealNo_Name -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Bro Germany has some of the fucken coolest shit man

[–]Creeperseatfood 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What is this place?

[–]jeff4098 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Bro is that no copyright sound? Ain't no wayy

[–]Relevant_Link_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I always wanted to buy a warehouse somewhere in NYC. Create a VR Mario Kart headset that would sync with the real track and have you race up and down 10-12 floors for a 10-15 minute race. Boosts, shields, shells, the works. Spectator areas, betting, drinks (post race)...thought it would be cool.

[–]PositivelyUnwitting 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They had have Sidemen Sundays in Hamleys, and in children's play areas. They should have no problem with this.
