Event Description

Steve Gibson, Justin Love and Jimmy Olson have developed an interactive piece that is as much satirical as it is engaging. Grand Theft Bicycle uses the revolutionary Borgcycle™ to allow the user to enjoy the thrill of killing some fundamentalist diskheads. In Grand Theft Bicycle the participant sits on his or her heavily-armed Borgcycle™, faces a large projection screen, and rides his or her way to victory!

The player is given total control of his or her direction through the revolutionary Borgcycle™ interface: pedaling increases the player’s speed through the 3D environment; turning the steering wheel turns the player to the left or the right in the environment; squeezing the front brake shoots weapons; squeezing the back brake stops the bike and holding it down reverses the bike.

As the player’s skills improve by taking out more of the enemy, the Borgcycle™ becomes an even meaner killing machine, adding rocket-launchers, amour, and yes even weapons of mass destruction! Oh yeah, don’t forget to drink some Freedom Cola™ along the way. It’ll give you the energy to knock off the toughest invader or insurgent.
