We developed a narrative driving simulator for BMW i. Presented at 2013 IAA, the visitor enters a cabin and can experience the silent acceleration of electric cars in a short, interactive driving sequence. Conceptualized in cooperation with yellow design.
A hidden motor rotates the cabin back and forth, so that the visitor experiences the acceleration and braking forces.
Our bespoke 3d render engine created the visual experience for the driving simulator in real-time.
BEHIND THE SCENES
The screen is seen through a special magnifying mirror which makes the image appear in the distance just like in a real car.
In addition a computer-controlled fan blows “wind” in the face of the visitor and a four-channel sound system simulates the experience of silently gliding through a vibrant city and a beautiful landscape.
