Cartroller: Driving Football
From Nissan Sverige:
The hybrid car was created by hacking a PS4 controller, opening it up, and adding a microcontroller inside to simulate the button presses, read the car signals and finally connect the signals to a PS4 with a mini PC. There was, we believe, lots of soldering involved.
According to Mikko Pietilä, creative director at TBWA\Helsinki, the idea was borne out of thinking about the unforeseen consequences of the ‘driverless’ car. What might people do in their vehicles when they no longer have to actively drive them? “Project Controller explores what part cars will play in people’s lives in the future and what is beyond the act of simply driving,” he says. “How will people spend their time in cars when they don’t need to keep their eyes on the road? Wouldn’t it be cool if your driving experience could be transformed into something entertaining?”
