The Anki Drive app was demoed at the WWDC this year, showing an impressive gaming experience that integrates artificial intelligence and robotics to bring video games to life.

The demonstration by Anki CEO and co-founder Boris Sofman shows the tiny toy cars on a figure eight race track. The cars are highly aware of their surroundings, and are able to navigate the race track and swerve to avoid the other vehicles at high speeds.

During the demo, Sofman activated a feature that made a group of cars block another car from passing. The Anki Drive application shows how future gaming experiences will integrate smart technology like this, bringing high speed racing games from beyond digital screens and into real life.
