I bet I am not the only child of the 80’s that loved to go to the arcade to play the driving games that had steering wheels like Pole Position and others. I could also spend the day playing with a cardboard box and loved anything that was remote controlled.
A dude has taken all three of those childhood playthings and rolled them into one batch of awesomeness with a sweet RC racing set up over on Make. The dude took a sit down arcade cabinet and used it for the controls of his RC car.
Each of those cars has a camera on it and sends video to the screen of the arcade cabinet for the driver to see where he is going. The guy went one step further than drawing buttons inside his box and cutting it up with a steak knife and built an awesome RC car race track out of cardboard. Check out a video of the system in action below.Filed Under: DIY Projects, Gaming News
