Taipei City, the capital of Taiwan, is getting ready to host the Summer Universiade of 2017. And to get everybody in the mood they’ve just turned some cars from their Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) subway system into realistic-looking sports venues.

The car floors have been turned into swimming pools, running tracks, basketball courts and soccer fields, and the commuters seem to be having a blast acting their dream victories on them.

For those unfamiliar with the event, the Universiade is the second-biggest international sporting event after the Olympics, and Taipei got the rights to host it by a landslide of votes back in 2011, beating the proposal of Brasilia, the capital of Brazil.

The revamped cars will be running on the Songshan-Xindian (Green) line, a central MRT route through August 19th to the 30th when the Summer Universiade will be taking place.

Today we celebrate artists and makers from around the world who are designing innovative and creative works using technology, science, electronics and more. You can start your own career as an artist today with Adafruit’s conductive paints, art-related electronics kits, LEDs, wearables, 3D printers and more! Make your most imaginative designs come to life with our helpful tutorials from the Adafruit Learning System. And don’t forget to check in every Art Tuesday for more artistic inspiration here on the Adafruit Blog!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
