VIDEO: THE GIANT YELLOW COMPUTER MOUSE THAT IS ACTUALLY A CARDate: 2018-02-24
Simone Giertz, a robotics nerd, is at it again, but this time she brings her friend to help create the 'cheese louise' mobile.
Her tiny, yellow electric car, which she named Cheese Louise (of course). William Osman, who is another YouTube inventor, is there to turn this adorable automobile into a working computer mouse.
There is not a lot of information on how they made this work, other than showing the sensor they've placed on the front of the car. They do show the results – Osman goes more in depth into the process in his own video on the project.
The duo head to a parking lot to test out the mouse-car, which moves the cursor by driving, and clicking takes place by honking. Their mission: to draw a self-portrait of the car in Photoshop. This proves more difficult than expected, as the program keeps on crashing. Eventually, Simone and William are able to draw what is essentially a triangle. It's not the best portrait ever, but hey! It works.
Have a look at the video below.
