Designed and engineered by Obscura Digital, the modified Tesla ‘Models‘ integrates leading edge software and hardware to display environmental injustices and spotlight the upcoming documentary ‘Racing Extinction’. The electric car features an electroluminescent paint job that allows the driver to custom animate the vehicle’s exterior. The central point of the Tesla is the motorised projector that rises from a hidden compartment in the rear.
Controlled using a joystick, the 15,000-lumen project lights content on just about any surface. At the very front sits a forward-looking infrared camera (FLIR). It’s rigged with a distinctive optical filter used to show invisible CO2 emission emitted by planes, other cars, factories, industrial plants and even people. The car can display in real-time through the projector what the infrared camera is uncovering.
