Drag Strip Arcade Game

Drag Strip is an analog arcade game simulator designed to bring the non- tangible interactions of a two-player racing video game to the physical world. It is an interactive toy meant for the young at heart, with the purpose of getting its users away from a computer screen and together with friends to enjoy some healthy competition. The Drag Strip Racing Game is composed of the arcade cabinet/player controls, and two race cars. The goal of this two-player game is to make your race car cross the finish line before your opponent. This is achieved by repeatedly pressing your pushbutton as fast as possible for the duration of the race. The faster the intervals of the button presses, the faster your race car will travel across the racing surface. The cars are made out of acrylic and construction paper.
