The PacBike is an interactive installation which uses a reclaimed exercise bicycle as an interface. The rider can explore a three dimensional park, generated in real time and filled with attractions and sounds. The virtual environment is projected in front of rider and bike to complete the illusion.
A seies of classic arcade games such as Pacman and Space Invaders have been adjusted and can now be played by bike providing a challenging and hilarious spectacle.
The work is a reaction to the limitations of the standard computer interface and an exploration into combining new and old technology. Or is it?
