Road to Zero - A Grumpy Sailor project .
I had two main roles in this project, first of all was to build a series of animations, ten in total. These diagrammatic animations needed to show the impact and consequences of certain types of car accidents at different speeds. Here are one from each of the four categories below. Second was to build a simplified 3D model of a car to be manufactured and act as a projection canvas.
The animations above are triggered at these consoles below. Pulling back the car trigger would set the speed of the car for each crash scenario and releasing will reveal the animation showing the consequences of a crash of that type at the given speed.

3D projection canvas & model
My role for this part of the project was building the virtual model of the car to then be manufactured. The physical car model acts as a projection canvas.
