There are certain expectations of the future that we can’t help but get excited about. And up there with commercial space travel and having all our meals come in capsule form is the promise of flying cars.

It’s no surprise, then, that as we sit on the start line of Lightstream Racer we’re giddy with excitement. And it’s not just the range of wheel-free hovering cars that have us gripped.

Thanks to the game’s augmented reality (AR) capabilities, you can place each racetrack into the real world, bringing these futuristic vehicles to life and upping the excitement as you stand in the middle of the floating action.

You control your chosen lightstream racer with an on-screen throttle, and you’ll need a finessed touch to stop yourself from spinning off in the corners.

Fortunately, the game’s AR features help you get to grips with the intricacies of space racing, because you can scope out the undulations of the track and get a better understanding of the distances into the braking zones and corners.

The AR tracks are your guide to quicker lap times, then – you’ll only wish that all racing games brought the action to life in this way.
