Big thanks to the guys at Finch for the videos and Tobio for the soundtrack. This project was developed with Lukasz Karluk and Nicholas Clark as part of MPU (Mobile Projection Unit) but why write about it when…

Since these early videos we ported the application to run on iOS and now power the entire rig from an electric tricycle powered by 3 deep cycle marine batteries! Snake the Planet! has since been released for iPhone and iPad.

MPU have toured Snake the Planet! at a number of international digital art festival including Vivid Sydney, Enlighten Canberra, Auckland Fringe Festival and many more smaller exhibitions. See the MPU site for more details.
