I was listening to a RadioLab podcast at the gym this morning. It was all about bliss. This Scandinavian guy, Alex, was the first to be interviewed. He spoke about how he wandered Antarctica for 3 months, leaving little packages buried in the snow with markers so that when he returned to those spots, he'd find some much needed supplies. Clearly, supplies were not the only thing he'd find.
This is a behind the scenes look at how Audi and custom slot track builder David Beattie of Slot Mods USA joined forces to create a one-of-a-kind interactive installation in Toronto to demonstrate what Quattro four wheel drive actually delivers. So they scaled down a bunch of Audi A4's into slot cars, built a slot car track and placed cameras inside the cars to allow racers a first-person look as they zip around the track using iPads as controllers. A world first. Pretty cool stuff.
