We believe that bringing people together for shared, real-world gaming experiences enables deep social connections that aren't possible with online gaming. Our small and scrappy, bootstrapped team, has been working for 2 years to drive this vision forward.
The Action Puck enabled RC car racing platform evolved from our team's drone racing heritage. The hardware consists of a sensor package that includes a GPS, IMU, Barometer and Compass. Mounted to any RC car, it streams real-time telemetry via WiFi to our gaming app. Our machine learning algorithm, trained for months in the real world, detects every jump, flip, drift and crash the the driver makes in real time.
Our technology understands what the car is doing in real-time and we use that to create breakthrough multiplayer RC car gaming experiences. This includes "party games", stunt competitions and racing.
The third piece that ties the experience together is xScape RC, a social app that connects local RC drivers for meet-ups and events. The app lists thousands of public, RC car friendly locations around the world.
When the action puck launches, all these locations will be turned into gaming arenas. Each location will have a leaderboard, challenges and records. Or you can download a universal track and compete in global competitions.
