Go see William Osman's video about building the car! - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZK_f... and thanks to Michael Reeves for being a guinea pig: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtHa...
We built a car that you drive with real-life video game lag, and used it for an ill-advised, mostly-unscientific experiment about motion sickness.
In case it wasn't obvious: we did this in a private area away from public roads and other traffic, and I insisted on more safety checks than William and Michael would normally have. Don't try this unless you're doing the same!
