How they do that?
I can't speak for the specifics of how they pulled it off- but since pretty much everything in the car is on the CAN bus, and the computers run Linux, so a special build of software that was timed to the music like those house light displays wouldn't be too far fetched to pull off. Mostly how did they sneak it by management? or was it sanctioned? I read earlier that there had been a posting with some explanation that got pulled. I find it very clever and certainly a good test of the door controllers. I know I certainly enjoyed watching it.
Someone had too much time on their hands. Does Tesla do the 20% projects like Google? This could be the result of one.
Still images edited to the music.
The interesting part is the individual control of left vs right headlights, fog lights, etc. There's no good reason why the car would ever want to do that, so why can it even be done through software?
The earlier video of it today showed the Tesla employees describing it, and thanking being able to be given a certain room - I couldn't quite make it out - in order to present the display. So I am satisfied that they created and showed it with the approval - or at least acquiescence - of their superiors.
If I were so uncharitable as to criticize it - I'm not! I think it's GREAT! - I would venture to ask as to why they did not also include a raising and lowering of the cars via their air suspensions. Wouldn't that have been neat to see the cars bowing?
Really Cool Stuff..Awesome video..Thanks for sharing
Wow!~ This is great!
(But there are still thoughts of angry bunnies.)
Great video, thanks.
Super cool!! Certainly sancioned (GREAT PR for all of us waiting). Amazing the software can control that. I guess they figured they better be prepared for anything, so they wired everything they could...
Wonder if they would ever allow us to download that particular program into our personal Xs. You know, like another Easter egg. Seems just programming involved without added hardware no? Although I do wonder how they got the falcon doors to open so high?!?!
:scared:It's another Easter Egg. Bring up the screen that controls the lights and just type "LIGHT SHOW" anywhere and your car will do it too!
The boys at Tesla SW Engineering have quite the imagination! Love their spirit!
Posted in two threads already.
Still images. Easy to photoshop out one headlight.
Wow, looks like someone at Tesla really had fun making this and also knew his stuff! Great to watch.
One could interpret some message into that... But I´ll refrain for once.
Merry christmas everyone!
