Audi augments reality for Ender’s Game

In close collaboration with the film’s stylists, Audi has designed a virtual car that will appear in the film adaptation of the book Ender’s Game. The Audi Fleet Shuttle Quattro is a purely digital entity within the movie, but integrates “seamlessly… into the environment of the film”, the automaker said. Audi previously contributed the RSQ, a decidedly non-virtual mid-engine sports coupe, to the 2004 film I, Robot. Distributed by Summit Entertainment, Ender’s Game is due for a worldwide release on 1 November. (Photo: Audi of America)
