xDroid bring the fun and excitement of video racing games to the real world,they enhance RC cars with interactive elements from video racing games, creating a completely new gaming experience. Making xDroid the first truly gamified RC car. In contrast to Augmented Reality, it brings the fun off the screen to the physical world and make it social.
The rush, the adrenaline, the dynamics of video racing games has now arrived in the real world. xDroid is introducing the first truly gamified remote controlled car. Destruction derby, capture the flag, drift and many more — with xDroid you can now play your favorite racing video games outside in the physical world.
All you need is the xDroid rc car, the interactive checkpoints “xPoints” and the xDroid app. The virtual vehicle is replaced by the 1:16 smartphone controlled xDroid — equipped with precise sensors, a high performance engine with 4 wheels-drive and a robust suspension system. If you want you can also upgrade your existing rc car with the xCore. Bonuses, scores and power-ups, just like in video games, can be collected by covering the xPoints.
In contrast to augmented reality like Pokemon Go, where the real world gets a digital overlay on the screen, xDroid wants to bring the fun off the screen. “With xDroid we take away video games from the screen and put them into the real world. We enhance rc cars with interactive game elements, to maximise the gaming experience.” explains CTO Roman Khazankin.
The xDroid app, available for iOS and Android, is the heart of the ecosystem, providing games, controller and a social gaming platform in one. It connects via an innovative Wi-Fi mesh network to xDroids and xPoints. It controls the xDroid with incomparable accuracy and gives you audio and haptic feedback during the game.
You can play xDroid in different modes, which makes it fun from young to old:
- Single-player: Master your driving skills in the free drive or stunt mode.
- Multiplayer: Capture the flag, destruction derby, domination, gold digger, catch up, and many more coming up
- Parent-child: Delegate only partial control to your kid, this makes xDroid fun for even the smallest kids.
- Droid mode: Learn coding with our graphical coding language and let your car drive autonomously.
In the future players will be able to create their own game modes and share them with other gamers. “We are not only creating a product, but are building a strong and motivated community.” says CEO Victor Rodionov.
