Tomy Turnin Turbo Dashboard and Outrun Arcade

By  | 

Every now and again you come across something “cool” on social media, especially if it reminds us of our childhood. If you were into Sega and liked the game Outrun Arcade, where you rip through the streets in a Ferrari Testarossa Spider and combine that with Tomy Turnin’ Turbo Dashboard you get something pretty cool.

Check out the video above…

Combining two historical pieces and making it into a semi-modern game, is pretty cool. Check out more about Outrun Arcade and Tomy Turnin’ Dashboard below…

Outrun Arcade

Outrun is an arcade game released by Sega in 1986. It was designed by Yu Suzuki and developed by Sega AM2. The game was a critical and commercial success, becoming one of the best-selling video games of its time. It is notable for its pioneering hardware, graphics and music, and innovative features such as a selectable soundtrack and nonlinear gameplay.

Tomy Turnin’

An early attempt at creating a home driving simulator was Tomy’s Turnin’ Turbo Dashboard, released in 1983. It was the first home video game-like device (actually not video, but electromechanical with simple projector consisting of lightbulb and rotating drum) to feature a racing wheel controller.

The Result
