undef.ch und Joshua Noble haben auf dem OFFF Festival in Barcelone (hier hatte ich den Kurzfilm zum Opening des Festivals gebloggt) einen einen gewöhnlichen Einkaufszettel Kassenbondrucker aufgebohrt, auf dem man ein Racinggame spielen kann. Das Pixelauto kommt per Beamer auf die in Echtzeit ausgedruckte Einkaufszettel Kassenbonumgebung. Schick!

The receipt racer combines different in and output devices into a complete game. It was made during the "Let's feed the future workshop", organized by creativeapplications.net as a part of the OFFF Festival in Barcelona on June 8th 2011. The game is played on a receipt printer, a common device you can see at every convenient store. It prints those papers you usually find crumbled up in your pockets, just to throw them away. It is a thermal printer using heat to darken the paper. This eliminates any slowdowns in printing lots of black. A roll can be ordered online and costs around 80 cents.

50 meters is the maximum distance you are theoretically able to race in one run, before running out of paper. So ecologically it's pretty much a disaster, just like any real car.

Print is a static medium. that's why it was an intriguing challenge to create an interactive game with it. First we tried to do it only with the printer as the visual representation but that seemed rather impossible. But then Joshua Noble came up with this tiny beamer, perfect to project a car onto a preprinted road.
