Friday Just For Fun Site – Real World Racer

Here’s something just for some fun on a Friday. (Not responsible if you get caught playing at work)

One of the things that I like most about Google is that they will let almost anyone play with their toys and they have some great toys. Tom Scott has created Real World Racer: A Google Maps Racing Game.

Tom uses the satellite photography from Google to let you plot out race courses almost anywhere in the world. You can chose from several default cities and tracks or you can create your own.

You get a red car to control using the arrow keys on your keyboard and the computer races white cars against you. If you know where you’re going you can take illegal short cuts.

I raced here in Pittsburgh and I especially liked driving across the river. It’s all very cool.

Play Real World Racer
