I have a thing for meaningful connected objects. So, it’s only natural that I wish to share my passion for them on this blog. For my first post here on connected objects, I introduce the smart racing cars of Anki Drive. I selected Anki Drive for three reasons:
- Connected objects are not just to smarten up your home or to motivate you to be more active.
- I think that Anki Drive represents the future of car racing game.
- My husband, my toddler and I had a blast at the Anki Drive event at the Apple store in Montreal last week.
The old-fashioned slot car racing still hold a little bit of their magic but they feel short when it comes to user experience. Over the years, video games have accustomed us to much more. This is why I was thrilled when my husband first talked to me about Anki Drive. Bridging digital technology with physical objects would deliver the most of both world. From what I experienced so far, Anki Drive has a good head start.
