Part running track and part nightclub, the track allows the user to race against an LED version of themselves over a 200-metre long track, shaped like the sole of a Nike, that takes up a good part of a Manilla city block.

The track was conceptualised and created by BBH Singapore. Check it out below:

The mechanics work in the following way: after setting an initial lap time, a sensor is attached to each runner’s shoe; their competitor avatar runs alongside them on the LED screens, appearing larger the faster and longer they run, encouraging runners to keep pace with their digital alter-egos.
