Ariel Atom Vs. Epson Printer [Video]
text size: A- A+
The below video answers precisely such an unasked question: if you put a race car on a track, against a printer, who would win?
The logic behind this illogical race is simple: take one Ariel Atom and one Epson inkjet printer, put them on a track and enjoy the show. But how do you put a printer, which by definition has no wheels (it doesn't usually need them, either), on a track?
The answer is simple: use the Atom's wheels. The guys who shot this video placed such a printer aboard the Atom, wirelessly rigged it with a laptop and pretty much solved the problem.
Now that this was out of the way, another question popped up: how do you make the Epson race the Atom? The answer, just as simple: give the printer the command to... print the layout of the track the Atom was racing on, while the Atom was racing on it.
When the lights turn green, the driver of the Atom takes off, while the guy with the laptop gives the printer the command to start doing its thing.
Of course, having a printer which spits out pieces of paper in an open top race car may be hazardous to the driver, and in the video below you will see how, in more than one occasion, the Epson printer tried to cheat and threw a few pieces of paper into the Atom driver's eyes.
As for the two questions with which we started this, the answer to both can be found in the video below. Enjoy!
