Hard Driving is am art-project, where basically everyone can control some sort of robots via Twitter. You must follow the @harddrivin twitter-account. Now everytime someone tweets, the cars mode. The longer the tweet, the longer the distance of the bots. Tweets with this hashtag #harddriving will cause both cars to move. Not really an interaction, if you ask me.
The installation is somehow inspired by the old Amiga game Hard Drivin'. Someone might remember thouse beautiful vector-graphics.

Whopee. Useful use for a Lego-robot. It can stack wooden tiles to domino-rows. The design is simple and straightforward without any surprise. Get all details about this project at the website of this Lego-bot.
