Taking a Virtual Car out into the Real world and having fun with it, or is it the other way around?
The real virtual car“Just came back home, checked the blog and saw something strange—comments…[…]—Somenight at 3AM the veteran geeks over at The Real Virtual Car Project decided to make a car simulator and to build it inside a real car. So they haunted several junk yards and finally fell for a Renault Megane. They took the wrecked car—which was involved in an accident—apart, and started to rebuild and stuffing it with electronics (the good part of which live in a bucket). A LCD-projector renders the street scenery onto the windshield. This creation of a casemod and a carmod at the same time led to the project being slashdotted and boingboinged. Little wonder that suddenly they found comments in their blog, and that their video-section broke down due to bandwidth problems. The project is not finished yet—check out the realvirtualcar blog for following its progress, and for watching pictures of the building-process.
