Nissan Raced A GT-R Around A Track At 210KM/H, Using A PS4 Controller

Video games get more and more realistic every year, but Nissan just took things to a whole new level.

Powered by a DualsShock 4, the Nissan GT-R /C is being touted as "the ultimate remote controlled auto for gamers" as this controller operated vehicle managed to hit speeds of 130mph around Silverstone.

Yes, that's an actual GT-R speeding around England's Silverstone Circuit in the video.

This specially designed GT-R was equipped with six computers mounted in the rear of the vehicle to update the controls at up to 100 times a second, while four robots operate the steering, transmission, brakes and throttle.

Spencer told lawmakers a failure of leadership as well as a lack of resources contributed to the collisions. Navy officials have said that prior to the collision, the destroyer experienced a loss of steering control.

The world's first gaming controller operated Nissan GT-R is a reality - yes, all you unbathed gamers who haven't seen the light of day, this really happened.

It was the flawless opportunity for Jann to show off his skills after he made it to the top tier of racing after impressing in Nissan's GT Academy that takes amateur gamers and gives them a shot at real-life motorsport.

The huge RC auto has been remotely driven by a British professional racing driver and GT Academy victor, Jann Mardenborough around the Silverstone race track.

Silverstone is a big track, though, so in order to keep an eye on his full-scale R/C auto, Mardenborough hopped into a helicopter for a bird's-eye view.

Honor 7X with dual rear cameras, Android Nougat launched in China
The RAM is fixed at 4GB, but the storage ranges from 32GB to 128GB and theres room for a microSD card on the hybrid dual SIM slot. Soon after launching the Honor 9i in India, the Huawei sub-brand has now debuted a new mid-range smartphone in its homeland.

Six computers in the boot update controls 100 times a second.

Mardenborough described the event as "once-in-a-lifetime, truly epic stuff".

The response from the auto when using the controller was far more engaging than I thought it would be. Gran Turismo Sport will be released in the USA on October 17, in Europe and Australia on October 18, and in Japan on October 19. Steering, acceleration and braking all allowing for controlled application so I could really get a feel through the corners and hold it steady down the fast straights. The unmodified PlayStation DualShock 4 controller was then connected to a micro-computer that interprets the controller inputs and transmits them to the auto. Driving a full-size, remote-control GT-R to 131 miles per hour at Silverstone whilst chasing it down in a helicopter was an unforgettable experience.
