Futuristic Sports & Entertainment

Recommended Posts

Self-driving cars are starting to become more common. Would a variant of NASCAR with those vehicles work? Removing the human element may drive (no pun intended) many fans away.

 

There is already a, "Roborace" that's in development as a Formula E support series. I don't think they've done much actual racing yet, just testing.

Self-driving races might be of interest to some of the AI sports fans. But they'd likely be following multi-threading core optimisation contests. 

 

The loss of the human element would probably mean having to add weapons to circuit racing to keep up interest. :)

Don't forget virtual reality resorts. Going into your VR pod and choosing a list of resorts that you can spend your day in. Going to the Iota-4 Snow Resort and ski and snowboard it up, or the Delarian Beltway Tropicasphere and cruising on your Jet Ski while viewing beautiful opalescent crystal formations in a cave right outside your cottage. Or if you want wackier things, go to Mesozoic Meadows for a dino-riffic experience that is also much safer than Jurassic Park, or the Glucose Archipelago for all with a sweet tooth who used to play Candy Land and celebrate Halloween back on Earth. Better yet, you could access them from various locations, and since they are online, you can chill with your friend who, in reality, is 532 parsecs away. There would be so much fun to have, so let's hope you don't get addicted to a false reality and see no more pleasure in real life.
