Behold: Blackbird -a  battery-powered automotive rig created by London based visual effects company The Mill.

A fully-adjustable wheelbase, track width, and suspension allows filmmakers to shoot car commercials without actual cars. The product chassis, in whatever required variant, colour or configuration, is superimposed over the Blackbird in post production via CGI.



40 year-old French waiter, aero-nut and would-be pilot Laurent Aigon spent five years constructing an insanely detailed 737 cockpit simulator in his son’s bedroom in Lacanau, south-west France.

Such was his attention to detail that he’s since been invited to lecture at the Institute of Aircraft Maintenance at Bordeaux-Merignac.
