How you’d like to drive a real world car from the comfort of your living room couch? Well, now you can. It’s all part of a marketing blitz for the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. You’ll be able to log on to a website and drive the car in realtime.
First things first, you can’t crash the vehicle. The car, which is located at a SoCal course, uses a GPS system to determine the location of the vehicle. If it veers too far off the path an automated system kicks in and puts the car back on track.
Second, users will be asked to driver over ‘feature’ icons on the course and collect as many as possible. We’re not sure what this will accomplish in terms of a reward system, but the same GPS system that keeps the car safe will be used to track your progress.
The site itself (OutlanderSport.com.) goes live on November 2nd. If anything, it’s chance to sip on a brewsky and get behind the wheel of a car without all the legal implications.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
