Eyes off the road

You can't win this racing game while texting.

Designer Holden LinkĀ has created a video game that should drive home the message that texting from behind the wheel is a really bad idea. Link’s game, SMS Racing, is based on a racing game demo with a first-person camera and cell phone thrown in the mix. The gamer is challenged to drive the course while responding to text messages within 10 seconds of receiving them. After watching the demo, we’d say good luck with that. Link says the gameplay makes it nearly impossible to text and drive at the same time. Not so unlike real life then.
