In recent years, escape room games have become more popular than they used to be. These are teams or individuals who have to figure out hidden clues and solve puzzles to get out of a virtual room and get out of the game. Ford has taken this idea and used it to make the Mustang Mach-E electric SUV, which has a lot of technical parts that make it fun to play games.
The concept escape room game from the spy genre sends players on a secret mission to deliver a very important package. The car's speaker system is used to give out directions to people. In addition, some things are turned on or used during the game. These include electric seats, automatic tailgate, air conditioning, and lights.
Except for the heater and the speaker, no game functions can be controlled while the Ford Mustang Mach-E electric SUV is in motion. As a result, players can leave the vehicle at any time and not lose the levels they have already reached. This is different from most escape room games, usually only played on a computer screen. First, the computer game is installed on an iOS device connected to the car through Apple CarPlay. Then, the game is played on an iOS device.
Because it shows what electric cars can do with the technology we have now, it is both fun and essential. Carsten Starke, a technical expert in interior materials and customer experience at Ford Research & Advanced Engineering in Europe, says it is both fun and necessary. Fun interactions between the driver and car could lead to new ideas for the future, like an interactive operating manual or even driver coaching.
The game is presently a functional concept being created by Ford Europe in conjunction with the company's Emerging Technology & Innovation group and the IOT group based in Palo Alto, California. It wants to show how games can help people learn more about how their cars work. The game also gives a glimpse into the future of possible applications. For example, the escape room game can be used to keep drivers and passengers entertained while they wait at charging stations.
