    I’m at the Nordic Exceptional Trendshop (NEXT) conference in Aarhus, Denmark. Among the innovations on display is this arcade cabinet and golf buggy hybrid which allows you to play Sega classic Outrun on actual roads.

    I spoke to its creator, Garnet Hertz, to find out more.

    Hertz has also created the ‘Doom Mirror’, a Kinect hack that copies your movements in front of the screen using characters from classic videogame Doom. Undoubted fun for anyone who remembers firing up this first person shooter on a 486 PC back in the early 90s.
