yeah, an email was going around the world like last year with the commercial. it was only played on TV once, and in japan i think. it got all its publicity through email and people viewing from downloading it, or from internet sites. its pretty sweet IMO

Actually, after watching it again... It was done on a computer. Look at the tires that bump into each other. There is no way that those could go uphill like that. You can even see them almost stop and then magically start up again!

Yea, I saw that about 6 months ago, after some consultation with some film/graphic desing majors we decided a lot of it was CG or at least computer enhanced. It's pretty cool though.

Everything in that video is absolutely possible to happen without computer enhancement. The tires are fitted with weights inside that are aligned with the center of mass... When they are bumped, the weights gain momentum and carry the tires up the incline.

I read some pretty indepth articles about it when it first started getting circulated around the internet. I think it's amazing, and would be so much fun to work on something like that (although frustrating at times I'm sure)...

:cool:

what you do is put a weight in the top of the wheel, and balance it so it points strait up, so when it is pushed a little foward, the weight makes the tire roll foward, so it goes uphill. it wasnt done on a computer. and if your wondering about the windshild wipers, they come on automaticly when they fell wetness. so when the fluid was sprayed, they detected it, and they turned on.

The speaker wires could have been run through the tubes that the speakers are sitting on. For the window... I was assuming that there was a broken circuit on the board that the cylinder was rolling on. Since it was a metal cylinder, it completed the circuit and rolled down the window. Now that I understand how the tires could roll uphill, I can definitely see how this could have been set up in real life.
