Chris Harris wants to get rid of all the cars, so he started designing an augmented reality app where they don’t exist. Harris tweeted a short clip on Monday which shows him walking past a row of cars and trucks on the road that seem to be blinking in and out of existence. There’s a truck — now it’s gone. Same goes for a motorcyclist. He points his phone at a passing window, and the reflections of the vehicles lined up behind him begin to flicker and morph as well.
It’s hallucinatory, glitchy, and raw, but you can see what he’s going for: a world without cars.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
