Many people tried out the Virtual Reality Hot Lap experience at the Liqui-Moly Technical Training Night. Participants sat in the actual car next to virtual driver Josh Muggleton as he piloted the car on what ended up being a very eventful lap at World Time Attack 2017. Sitting in the same car that set that lap, Volksmuller's race prepped Golf GTI, added a new level of immersion.
The 3D 360 camera was originally mounted in the same location as a typical passengers head would be. This added to the feel that you were actually there. People viewing the experience could actually reach out and touch the dash, roll cage and vent controls and they were where your hands expected them to be. A new slant on mixed reality.
