Cat Car

Take a cat for a spin!

Introduction to Physical Computing

Users are invited to pick up the steering wheel of the Cat Car and take a feline friend for a delightful drive! A gyroscope mounted in the steering wheel measures tilt and transmits that information to a laser pointer harnessed to the back of a cat. Steer left, laser turns left, cat goes left! (Ideally.)

(I won\'t be bringing a cat to floor. I\'ll have a video of it in use and the system mounted to some form of stand-in cat-like object for visitors to try.)
