Backseat driver: enjoy the ride

14 Jul

I’m blaming my lack of blogging of late on the lack of contagious ideas. But this iPhone app from ToyToyota caught my eye today. Cue cheesy Japanese demo.



Backseat driver lets kids enjoy driving from the back seat of their car via an iPhone game. Here’s the smart bit – the app uses GPS technology to mirror the route of the real car in which the player is riding. Score points by steering “My Car” left and right to follow “Papa Car’s” path and pick up objects. After you’ve gained some points, you can customise your car with your own designs.

Er, when’s the adult version coming out? Is it weird that I’d quite like it for road trips? Nope, didn’t think so.
