Real Job, Much?: Designers Build Analog Video Game Powered by Elaborate RC Car Race Track

I’m not sure exactly what it means to be in a German design collective called “sputnic”, but it apparently involves:

  1. Dressing up like a contemporary version of the Sprockets guys from Saturday Night Live.
  2. Committing hours and hours to frivolous projects with no apparent commercial value, but with plenty of appeal to geeks with a taste for creative, self-indulgent  frivolity. (I.e., people on the internets.)
  3. Techno music. ‘Cause, you know… Germans.

From sputnic’s Racer Project website:

It consists of a modified vintage arcade machine, a RC model car with a wireless camera,and a self-constructed racetrack/game level made entirely from cardboard.

Via UberGizmo, who once worked in a design collective. He found new work shortly after trying to pay his rent with frivolity.
