Week TechVideo, 2008 #04 - Bumper Cars

This week I bring a video, which is not exactly a TECHNIC model, but have a least a TECHNIC soul...
Play the video and take a look into the MOC internals, so you see what I mean.

It is from João Figueiredo, a builder from my LUG (PLUG), so I'm proud for this week TechVideo. ;)

Look how real, the movements seem to be.

See the photos here.

All this began, with a great discussion, months ago at PLUG Forum, about how did the cars from the videos below, could be moving alone.
These appeared at '2007 Great Train Expo in Novi, Michigan' (MichLUG events).

I had the opportunity to see them live, and their movement is marvellous! They really appear to be moving on their own, causing and avoiding collisions, and sometimes stopping just to get moving again a moment later.

One disadvantage, though: the cars are real tile scratchers! ;-)

Those bumper cars are sooo cool, too bad about the scratched tines though...
