I really like these little cars. It feels like one of the only hardware startups I've ever written about that's had some moderate success, and version 2.0 looks way better:
The result is a track made of a flexible but sturdy material that snaps onto other pieces via inconspicuous magnets at the end of each piece. The Overdrive starter kit, which will retail for $149, contains enough pieces to create eight different tracks. Anki is selling expansion packs that let you add a four-way intersection, a U-turn, or a jump — and having watched a series of A.I.-powered cars soar flawlessly over a gap in the track, I can't imagine anyone who buys Overdrive not wanting one.
