Herbie was designed for the purposes of recreation—what originated as a simple RC car, meant for enthusiasts with a requisite skill level, is now controllable by more novice operators. Updated from a basic RC remote to something more easily recognizable—holding a cell phone as a controller and turning it like one would a steering wheel, it becomes more intuitive to use.
Existing products either don't have video, or if they do, they don't have content to go with the video, let alone another steering wheel and pedals to control the car. The Herbie will give players the immersive experience of first person driving along with dynamically generated gameplay elements to heighten their enjoyment.
