Tamiya Mini 4WD “High Speed ​​Colors – A new sense circuit created with Sony”

“New sensation circuit” for mini 4WD with sound, light and image will appear in Shibuya on February 13

Author: Toshiya Koketsu @DAYS
Sony, with the cooperation of Tamiya, will start a new sense of racing activity “High Speed ​​Colors-A new sense circuit created with Sony-” at the Sony Square Shibuya project from February 13th.

The New Sensation Circuit is a new entertainment experience that colors the mini 4WD running at high speed with Sony’s high-speed vision sensing technology and sound, light, and video. First, the participants select the main color, sub-color, and circuit effects to be mapped to the body of the mini 4WD. The colors and images that are projected will change depending on the design and direction selected, so that the participants themselves can be creators and create the direction.

First, when the Mini 4WD starts running, the body design selected by the participants is mapped to the body. After that, a retro game style stage appeared on the circuit. When a coin appears on the course and the mini 4WD gets through it, a sound is heard, and when a DJ turntable appears on the course and the mini 4WD passes, a sound like scratching sounds. Furthermore, as the mini 4WD progresses, the sound and production are linked together, such as the body turning into an insect in the middle and a huge “eye” appearing. Then, the stage changes to a stage like the near future of science fiction movies, and a light beam comes out from the body of the mini 4WD and appears as a trajectory on the course. Finally, the stage changes to a stage like a different space with various elements. The Mini 4WD cuts the finish line of the race and finishes.

The productions inside and outside these courses were co-created with the creative group “PERIMETRON” led by King Gnu leader Yuki Tsuneda. Producer of PERIMETRON, Shotaro Nishioka, produced the project, two-person creative unit Margt was in charge of direction and design, and Yuhei Kobe was in charge of CG production. The music is made by 20-year-old artist Dr. Pay.

The new sensation circuit allows two people to experience each race. Since there are 180 patterns, you can enjoy it as many times as you want. Participants will also be presented with a mini 4WD with a custom-designed design and an original video of the powerful race.
