Caterpillar, in honor of the 40th anniversary of the iconic arcade game, brought Pacman and his rivals to a specially built training ground. But to play, "gamers" needed compact excavators with remote control and augmented reality glasses.
- With the help of Caterpillar equipment, one of the maps of the Pac-man game was recreated in a scale that allows small excavators to navigate the maze. The team of players included not only employees of the company, but also buyers of Caterpillar products and professional gamers.
- The round ended with a convincing victory for Pacman. Immediately after the game, the maze was razed to the ground by much larger bulldozers.
- Caterpillar said it wasn't just a game. The maze conditions simulated realistically the situations that operators of such equipment find themselves in when performing their daily tasks at work sites.
- In the summer, one of the Caterpillar dump truck drivers in Chesterfield, UK, drifted on a 40-ton truck. In a power slide, he drove up to load the excavator.
