THE IMPORTANCE OF THE HUMAN FACTOR

The slot car game. Technology versus imagination.
ALBERT BOET
…two concepts closely linked to everyday life, random and meteorology, two royalty-free concepts, two aspects that cannot be controlled by humans, united to regain the enthusiasm for the slot car game.
Some might accuse me of putting the focus on a product, an initiative, but after listening and value various important voices in this sector, have considered it appropriate go ahead with the idea that popped into my head at the time of knowing the project. Imagination against technology. Return to the origins versus Plug and Play complexities. Game on its concept of participation, fun, competitiveness and random versus to the beat of a computer program game.
Yes, all this comes to coalition of the new product marketed by Mitoos, Climate Tyres, which could be considered a punch on the table. A recover the concept of game! But also not only at home but also at the level of fan club competition. A simple and forgotten Dice, a little of imagination and the game around the slot car world resurfaces.
We will not be us who will deny the evolution of the slot, technological contribution in recent years, digitization, data capture, the computer control, the bi-directionality, applications ... We are aware that slot cars succumbed to the unstoppable Plug and Play video games, and now the innumerable applications for any kind of smart device. And he looked reasonably approach a traditional game to these new trends. And are still looking but always towed by the major powers of interactive games.
Probably in all that effort was left out the ability of the user to manage his own amusement, his way of understanding a game.
In recent applications we can find excellent slot game options, from refueling, power controls, tire changes, overtaking, organization and racing management and even cars learning themselves their behavior on slot track. The player has to step in, but almost everything is virtual, becoming the slot car driver in a mere spectator of the evolution of his car on track. I remember the harsh controversies when came out the first Digital Electronic Controllers that allowed wirelessly modify the power curves and different parameters from a computer located in the pits, to adapt the driving to track conditions. This bi directionality coincided even with the same controversy that arose in the real F1. The slot car lived of technology, grew with it and evolved, but not for the base, for the domestic game, the game between friends, the necessary pool of young fans that have to feed the slot-hobby of the future.
Today a simple Dice, a game of more than 5000 years of history, wants to rescue slot cars for the direct involvement of the human factor.
Curiously, two concepts closely linked to everyday life, random and meteorology, two royalty-free concepts, two aspects that cannot be controlled by humans, united to regain the enthusiasm for the slot car game. I can neither want to speculate on the acceptance of the proposal. Is likely that those who generationally come from the most basic slot car game, those who dreamed and enjoyed with a simple 8 see in this new game option, that turning required in order that the generations abducted by the small screens raise their head and discover that the slot car game offers fun and entertainment in which the human factor is important. A step forward so that the slot game alive.
