Volkswagen Touareg: 4MOTION Free Parking

Volkswagen Touareg - 4MOTION Free Parking 1 Volkswagen Touareg - 4MOTION Free Parking 2

“To demonstrate the power of Volkswagen 4MOTION technology, we made free parking even tougher to get, working with a team of builders to build a ramp measuring 15 feet high and 31 degrees steep in a busy downtown parking lot. We offered a spot to whoever could manage the climb to the top. Thanks to 4MOTION, the Touareg rose to the challenge – in view of curious onlookers as it climbed – and parked – above the rest.”

Incredible scroll drawings created inside a moving car by Carl Krull

carlkrull-01 carlkrull-02 carlkrull-03 carlkrull-04 carlkrull-05 carlkrull-06

A series of incredible scroll drawings by Danish artist Carl Krull. The obsessiveness of the line work is impressive, but what’s more impressive is that these were drawn, line by line in the passenger seat of a car, during a road trip across the United States. Every bump in the road was incorporated into the drawings.

Paper City

Paper City 1 Paper City 2

Very impressive.

The streets are paved with paper. This delicate animation follows the charming rise and fold of a fragile metropolis. Captured by an unseen helicopter, the narrative unfolds through winding roads, erupting forests and emerging mountains. Paper City grows in one fluid take, with skyscrapers rising from the page – only to crumble, wrinkle and gently crease back into the ground.

Over 130 Gallons Of Paint Dumped In Busy Intersection – by Iepe Rubinigh

Iepe-Rubingh-street-art4 Iepe-Rubingh-street-art1 Iepe-Rubingh-street-art2 Iepe-Rubingh-street-art3 Iepe-Rubingh-street-art5 Iepe-Rubingh-street-art6

Dutch artist Iepe Rubinigh and the Anonymous Crew took the term “street art” very literally with their piece Painting Reality.  The group, equipped on bicycles, purposely spilled over 130 gallons of eco-friendly water soluble paint in a Berlin’s busy Rosenthaler Platz intersection.  The cars then acted as brushes spreading the various colors through street.  An abstract painting detailing the fluid-like flow of traffic unfolded over the next several minutes and 2,000 cars.  Painting Reality introduced pleasantly bright color to otherwise drab asphalt.

Responsible Young Drivers: The Alcohol Barrier

Responsible Young Drivers -The alcohol barrier 1 Responsible Young Drivers -The alcohol barrier 2

Great idea!
The very first parking barrier that doesn’t work with a ticket or chip, but with an alcohol test. You actually have to blow safe for it to open. If you drank too much alcohol the barrier stays closed and you can’t leave the parking lot.
