Castrol is testing VR technology

Perhaps soon all drivers will be driving cars with head goggles using virtual reality technology that will connect the real world with digital technology, providing many new opportunities. So far, the technology is tested on closed routes, and Castrol engineers are working on it.

A well-known engine oil producer, a few months ago, presented the amazing capabilities of virtual reality systems, dressed in a VR helmet for the racing driver and letting it off the track. Although the driver did not see the true route, but his digital image displayed on the screens placed by his eyes, he did well.

Now Castrol decided to replicate this experiment, a bit of variation. This time, two racing drivers took part, including Ben Collins, former Stiga of the British Top Gear program. Drivers raced on two separate tracks, but with the VR helm on their heads, they saw each other in a virtual world.
