Designers Joshua Noble, Martin Fuchs and Philip Whitfield breathed new, modern-day life into this archaic receipt printer by combing it with a PlayStation controller, light sensors and some Spy Hunter-esque gameplay mechanics.

The receipt Racer was created for the “Let’s feed the future workshop,” which took place during the OFFF Festival in Barcelona on June 8, 2011.

The racing game runs on an open platform that randomly develops the track in real-time.

The software then takes this information and uses it in conjunction with a light sensor to gauge the car’s location on the moving track.
