Apple Karts

Apple Karts was a project that we took on earlier this year. Elio, Jon, Mike and Pete put together a remote control car that is programmed using your iPhone, a physical App. To program the car all you had to do was record a tune on your iPhone using a toy trumpet; the trumpets had four notes, each not corresponds to forwards, back, left or right. Once you have recorded your tune you simply plug the phone into the car and it will drive your programmed route. We were asked to take these out to Milan to run a workshop  as part of the Il Compasso Di Latta event in  La Triennale di Milano. To make it more fun we decided to make them drawing machines, so that over the course of the workshops we would create giant works of art.
