Turn 10 Studios has been working to merge the magic of Microsoft's new Kinect technology with its engaging Forza Motorsport driving simulator games, exploring how players can race and interact with their dream cars in the most immersive and realistic automotive environment. The studio recently threw a series of parties to celebrate this breakthrough and five years of console racing excellence.
On Forza Motorsport 3's high-definition tracks, players experienced controller-free driving. With Kinect, you're able to drive and race by simply by putting your hands in front of you at 10 and 2. You can move your head to look around the interior. You can even look into the corners, zeroing in on that apex as your dream machine struggles for grip at a seamless 60 fps. It's crazy.
Off-track car exploration reaches a whole new level because Kinect allows the user to break through the screen and walk up to the car. It's like having the ultimate showroom right in your living room. You can walk around and check it out from any angle and take a closer look at the minute details.
Turn 10 says there will be more to come on this exciting project in 2011. For more information, surf to http://www.forzamotorsport.net/en-us/Future_of_Forza/.
