A new game from developer Dekko utilizes the power of augmented reality to allow players to race cars on any surface see-able through the viewfinder in their new game Tabletop Speed. Augmented reality, which involves using applications to overlay digital pieces onto real-world views has yet to come into its own, but Dekko is betting that AR’s day is just around the corner.

The game allows racers to race along a digitally projected track in either a single or multiplayer experience. While this may be a simple use of AR, the possibilities are endless for Dekko, who are experimenting with wearable tech like Google Glass. A future where we see Yelp data projected onto restaurants in our field of vision, or data about our favorite sports stars as they take the field may not be far off, but it all starts with technology like Tabletop Speed.
