These Mixed Reality Videos Blur The Line Between Real & Virtual

Sim racing video wizard Marcel Pfister is back with stunning new mixed reality videos that blend real and vr footage for a stunning effect.

What is Mixed Reality?

It´s a way to record and show game play to serve a better understanding of how it feels to use Virtual Reality. It uses a green screen to later blend out the room you are playing in and instead blending in the virtual environment life or in video editing. So it´s only a way to show to the viewers, while playing i can´t see my wheel and real hands. So it´s not like Augmented Reality, which will maybe come in a few years and will look similar.

All three videos below have been made with Assetto Corsa. The first shows off some great drifting action in the Ford Focus WRC car:

In the second video, Marcel throws the Ferrari 812 around the famous Nurburgring Nordschliefe (notice the fun detail of him tagging his card at the beginning of the tourist drive lap!):

The final video shows an open road Ferrari run in the 250 GTO on Canyon Run:
