The folks over at Rooster Teeth claim that they play a lot of video games (like Grand Theft Auto). One of the team members there decided to see what it would be like to drive a real car from the same viewpoint as a car in a video game and devised a clever way for this to happen.
He basically blacked out all the windows in a car and ported the live-view from a Canon 5D into an LCD display mounted inside the car. The camera had a 17mm viewing angle from behind the truck and two test drivers had to do their best to drive an obstacle course with while seeing nothing but the view from the LCD live-view. It’s not as easy as it looks apparently. [via]
