Audi is claiming to have launched the world’s first interactive YouTube driving experience for the new Audi A6. The interactive YouTube experience uses the indexing feature so you can control the video with your keypad numbers, allowing you to jump from section to section to provide the illusion that you are actually controlling the car.
At first glance it looks pretty cool. The graphical quality is high with a game like feel and the video has an inset stream of a driver, but once you start to press the numerical keys you’ll quickly experience something that’s quite clunky and slow to react to the inputs.
Full marks for trying something innovative, but it’s a shame, because I really don’t think this represents the Audi driving experience very well. What do you guys think?
