This is the Coolest Remote-Controlled Car Ever

Jann Mardenborough Nissan GT-R

Remotes can be used for many things: changing the TV channel, playing video games, and controlling an RC auto. There is even a GT Academy where players of the game learn how to drive real-world race cars.

Check out Mardenborough driving the GT-R /C via remote control in the video below.

Mardenborough, 26, sat in the cockpit of a helicopter as he tailed the Nissan GT-R around the home of racing on the Bucks and Northamptonshire border.

To celebrate the release of Gran Turismo Sport for the PlayStation 4, Nissan built a auto that perfectly blends video game driving and real-life racetrack antics.

British firm JLB Design fitted the Nissan with four robots to operate the steering, transmission, brakes and throttle. But Mardenborough still had to see where the auto was going, so special permission was obtained from Air Traffic Control to fly a Robinson R44 Raven II helicopter at illegally low altitude over the circuit, with Mardenborough, the DualShock4 controller and the Racelogic LCD display on board.

Buyer's remorse be gone, Walmart puts returns in fast lane

To celebrate the release of Gran Turismo Sport on the PlayStation 4, Nissan heavily modified a GT-R that could be driven entirely by a DualShock®4 controller. The unmodified PlayStation DualShock 4 controller was then connected to a micro-computer that interprets the controller inputs and transmits them to the vehicle. With this, Mardenborough was able to post a fastest lap of 1:17.47 at the circuit, with an average speed of 122km/h.

That micro-computer is responsible for interpreting the joystick and button signals and transmitting those signals to the car's onboard systems. The controller itself was completely unmodified connected to a microcomputer with a wireless operation control range of one kilometre. In the helicopter, Mardenborough used an LCD display to judge speeds. As a victor of the Nissan GT Academy competition that combines virtual racing with actual track races, Mardenborough was a natural choice for the task.

Gran Turismo Sport is due to be released on October 17-barring any unforeseen six-year delays.

Jann said: "This was once-in-a-lifetime, truly epic stuff. Now that's innovation that excites!"

After this demonstration run, Nissan will tour the GT-R/C around schools in the United Kingdom to promote STEM education.
