It's Alive Videos !!!

This is the first time we actually tried to get it working



We decided to have some fun with it



We stubled into a bug in Nascar which froze the whole system for a few seconds. Funny enough it was exactly when a Viagra car passed us :-)



This is how looks inside and outside

Sorry, friends, You've been "BoingBoing-dotted".

http://www.boingboing.net/2005/05/11/car_modded_to_contro.html

Your latest images are gone to "bandwidth exceeded" land.

Still, this is an =amazing= project! I've been a simracer for years, and have yet to see anything this radical yet. Congrats on being the most manic simdriving hardware hackers out there yet.

Welcome to the Slashdot effect... you're picture are vanishing. But the older ones look incredible.

Maybee you could try proyecting from behind the white screen, some screens handle rear proyection, that way you could proyect strait infront.
Maybe use a distortioning efect so u feel surronded?

This Has to be from the video source, or you could do a rounder screen.

Keep up the good work

Congratulations on being Slashdotted! That's how you know you've done something REALLY amazing. And y'all have!

Good luck in your endeavor, and see if y'all can make a buck while you're at it!

I agree with the poster about projecting from behind the screen. Why not set the projector up OUTSIDE of the car and have the image mirrored horizonally. The result would be *much* better I think.

I also

I also agree about the rear-projection; however there are issues. You want a good screen, which can be a few hundred dollars. Also, it's nearly impossible to get an affordable acoustically transparent rear-projection (transmissive) screen. Of course, it should not be hard to integrate speakers into the car itself. I mean, the car already has speakers (or at least holes) *inside* it...

This is one cool setup.

mike said...

A quick note on the rear projection.

If you do look into projecting from the front of the car its probably going to mean putting the projector outside of the car (or maybe into the 'nonexistent' hood, but that’s a rather steep angle).

I mean to suggest consideration of practicality - if it were to be transported and in future uses/development.

There are going to be other ways, but this is considering the home brewed approach and using what you have.

Though, distorting the signal so you can wrap the screen around the sides some sounds interesting indeed.
