I'm guessing latency from the video camera is a bit of a problem? It seems from the video like the controls are not exactly responsive...

It looks like it was made for pocket change, so I wouldn't be surprised if the controls are crummy. What an idea though! As I watched, in my head I imagined how far the idea could be taken: perfectly detailed and fully functioning miniature cars, racing around a realistic miniature track. Virtual racing, but real - the world's first Nano Grand Prix. Smile

Yes, but then a real back dropper is needed. Or cars which are able to jump back on wheels automatically...

Or cars that are so big that they're hard to flip - and tracks without such crappy sloped walls. Like, for instance, sidewalks! Of course, you need pretty damn strong antennas in that case... some 6 years ago I was dreaming up something like that, with miniature V8 Supercars and V8 Utes as cars, racing from my old school in Laichingen down to where my father's flat used to be... ahh memories Smile
