The world of consumer Do-It-Yourself (DIY) electronics has recently experienced an astounding growth as affordable electronics and internet guides have allowed interested people to build amazing creations. The purpose of the project is to demonstrate how store-bought parts and inexpensive tools can produce a high visibility project that can be displayed at multiple events, including Imagine RIT and the Freescale Cup.

The goal will be realized through the creation of a remote-controlled car that is operated through an immersive, first-person perspective. The output of the multidisciplinary team will need to be both an engaging and entertaining exhibit at events and a motivator for interested individuals to learn more about engineering and Do-It-Yourself project construction.
