Mars Bus

by Brent

The coolest thing I learned about at the Northside Festival was probably this project that one of the speakers was involved with. It’s a bus where they replaced the glass of the windows with LED (?) screens, so it it looked like regular glass but then when they turned it on it became like tv screens all in sync with each other.

When it turned on the magic happened, the kids were all of a sudden driving over the surface of mars! They included an accelerometer so the speed of the display matched the acceleration and direction of turns was also mapped.
