Real Racing 2 HD now lets you play in 1080p on an HD TV via mirroring from an iPad 2.
Using the phenomenal power of iPad 2, Real Racing 2 HD smoothly renders a stunning 1080p image to your TV while displaying your position, lap times and speed on its own screen. Seamless connectivity means you can disconnect and reconnect effortlessly without interrupting your gaming experience.
OK, we’ve known for a while now this was coming, but it is still tremendously cool to see it in action. The smooth handling of connecting and disconnecting sounds especially slick.
I just did the update to Real Racing 2 HD that enables this feature this morning, and had a quick look at the 1080p mirroring. It’s pretty much just as good as expected – at least from a quick initial look. I’ve only tried a quick race so far but I’m looking forward to some serious racing later on when I have some time.
Here’s the list of requirements for using this new feature of Real Racing 2 HD:
- iPad 2 with Real Racing 2 HD (version 1.10 or later) installed
- Apple digital AV adapter
- HDMI cable
- HDMI compatible display (example: HDTV capable of full 1080p)
And here’s an App Store link for Real Racing 2 HD; it’s priced at $9.99.
