The second project I am currently working on is Mobilis, another human-powered mechanism but this time it is in the form of a convertible car. I've been working with a programmer (Slava Balasanov) to develop a mobile and web application that will communicate with each other via an online server. The user will be able to virtually navigate through wilderness parks and the adjacent industrial sites using an iPad. To view these sites the user must pedal the car (it will have a bicycle chain drive) to power the screen (windshield) that project these two images side by side. Below is an image of the Grand Canyon and the adjacent uranium waste sites. By scrolling their finger on the iPad glass, the user can navigate in the sites, like one would in Google Earth with their mouse.
