Max Verstappen – Being Tech Curious with Mixed Reality. Episode 1
Whenever a sim racer hears the words Mixed and Reality, the first person to come to mind is Marcel Pfister. Since early 2016, Marcel introduced the sim racing scene to what we now know as “Mixed Reality” sim racing videos. Being a big fan of VR technology Marcel crafted an exciting series of video promoting the future of the sim racing scene. He creatively used his Oculus Rift VR headset and a green-screen to blend in the virtual with the real world, resulting in rather spectacular racing videos.
A big shoutout to Marcel Pfister. Your sim racing creativity is now going places.
By combining the popular “Mixed Reality” sim racing video concept with the fame of Dutch Formula One driver Max Verstappen, the Dutch Online Business Software company Exact, who are also one of the sponsors of Max decided to release their own Mixed Reality video Series. Episode 1 takes us behind the scenes of the Mixed Reality recording session.
Belgian-Dutch Max Verstappen is the son of former Formula One driver Jos Verstappen. Currently Max competes under the Dutch flag in Formula One with Red Bull Racing. Max debuted at the 2015 Australian Grand Prix for the Scuderia Toro Rosso team after which he was promoted to the Red Bull F1 team as a replacement for Daniil Kvyat, who took over his seat at Toro Rosso.
At the age of 17, he became the youngest driver ever to compete in a Formula 1 championship, the youngest driver to lead a lap during a Formula One Grand Prix, the youngest driver to set the fastest lap during a Formula One race and the youngest Formula One Grand Prix winner in history (at the age of 18).
