Created by Marnix de Nijs, Beijing Accelerator is an interactive game where “the participant takes position in a racing-chair on a motorized structure equipped with a joystick.” See it in action after the jump.

While the participant controls both the direction and speed of the chair, rotating panoramic images are projected on the 160×120 cm screen in front of him/her

The target square in the top panoramic image needs to be matched with the same position shown on the magnified image below. As soon as this is achieved the images “snap into place” and rotate in sync with the participants movement. After a short period of time however, a new rotating-panorama appears with a higher preset speed. This is determined as the next level (there are 6 levels in total) and is more difficult to obtain the balance in order to cohesively recognize the picture
