Think of the Ghost Pacer as your own personal carrot on a stick. Nothing makes a person more competitive than seeing that they’re actually losing to a competitor. It’s why multiplayer games are infinitely more fun and fast-paced than solo gaming. The Ghost Pacer brings a similar sort of competitive-ness to the act of solo-jogging.
Designed as a pair of AR glasses you wear while running, the Ghost Pacer analyzes your running route and sets you up against a virtual runner who pushes your competitive spirit. The Ghost Pacer comes with an app that you feed your running route into, along with a time limit you want to achieve. It then uses that data to project a life-size runner who runs right beside you, often overtaking you in an effort to make you run faster. Seeing the projection running ahead motivates you to run faster than you would if you were on your own.
