Receipt Racer

Take a look at Receipt Racer — a microproject by Joshua Noble and undef.

Done in just one day, as part of the CreativeApplications.Net OFFF2011 Workshop, the game is a fascinating mix of interactivity and print. Using a thermal receipt printer, a racing track is printed. The racing car is projected onto the printout with a micro projector, and a game controller lets the player steer.

The creators note that using 50 meters of paper for one race run isn’t very efficient… “Ecologically it’s pretty much a disaster, just like any real race car.”
