Laser scanned TT course?


Recommended Posts

A couple of years ago does anyone know if Sony did actually laser scan the TT course?

I remember seeing two cars at the grandstand with gizmos on them and us being warned of slow moving vehicles on the course.

I'm even sure I remember hearing a report on Manx radio saying the gov had signed with Sony giving them the licence. But now I can't find anything apart from some things saying Sony took some pictures.

They did scan the circuit and went on to subsequently release 3 editions of a video game featuring the TT course.

 

I believe a new game is due out for the X Box.(link) http://www.thecheckeredflag.co.uk/2016/04/isle-man-tt-video-game-way/

 

ETA: It was around 2005/2006 when the first edition PS2 game was released.

Yeah not that game. That wasn't a laser scan of the course either.

Sony were over in July 2014.

Time for a VR TT Racing Game

 

Will it accurately depict slamming into something at 150mph or will it have respawns?

 

I think to make it as close to the real experience, you get one life and then the game becomes unplayable.

 

I seem to remember Steam had a game last year that once a certain number of players had died in game, the game would cease to function.

Didn't say it was a laser scan but Jester Interactive did do some form of scanning operation to get course detail correct for the original Sony release.

It should include plans for making an R1 out of cardboard, that you sit on while wearing your Oculus.

 

 

There's an Oculus VR chair at about £599 - not much like a racing bike tho'
