After I built my little rover I decided to create a small model of mars’ surface.
The rover should drive around in this model while being observed through a webcam.
I took original NASA photos and built a artificial horizon:
Original NASA Images:
This is the result:
and out the rover’s sight:
Just as if you drove around Mars yourself:
Probably I will set up a webpage so that anybody is able to control the rover over the internet.
I've always wanted to work with little robots or make my own with Lego Mindstorm. I've yet to do it, but I'm not dead yet. There's still hope. Good luck with the rover, do you plan on adding sand and rock to the model as well?
very interesting, keep it up
nice job, The colors you used match the original picture well.
Haha that's pretty interesting.
Total Recall has forever tainted my opinion of Mars.
great post. following you
Cool project! Keep us updated.

Awesome. Looks really cool
You know the virtual Teleskop? That's a cool program
That's some awesome stuff man. I would really like to see that web page.
So cool! Following.
awesome… i'm an intern at united space alliance and this stuff is always being discussed. Hope one day we can make it to mars
That's pretty awesome. Clearly the moon landing was fake! Jk
An interesting read =)
whan you can do this you can do anything
thats freakin sick!!
So this is how they faked the moon landings ;P
That looks really nice, I wouldn't be surprised if you were hired by nasa to help put man on mars 😉
Wow great. I wish I could be creative like that. My hands just won't work like that.
Would love to drive your cart on that.. can't wait!
very cool man, now you should recreate the set of pulp fiction
Wow, that looks pretty close to the original!
what an awesome idea. i love the internet idea…i'll try it for sure.
almost looks real 😛
Almost real, but you can tell there's paper when you look at the whiter section of the paper. Otherwise, awesome stuff. Would love to see the website 😀
I wouldn't mind controlling the rover through the net.
if you use a bad quality camera lots of people will fall for it. stage a Mars landing, post it on youtube and get 5M views overnight
holy crap this is awesome. following.
Dude, that seems legit!
this is really nifty, good work
This is just plain awesome! Love it!
Now thats cool. Quite different style.
today's technology is so f—— awesome! i love it!!
wow that is pretty fucking sick!
That'd be awesome haha I want to drive your rover 😀
HAhahah thats cool!!!
Haha, cute. Very accurate too.
Wow! well done!
haha that is so neat..
really interessting content b,ro
haha this is amazing, set up the web page!
how long did that take you to build?
Great job with that rover, and the landscape looks pretty legit. I only ever tried with the Lego Mindstorm, and that was frustrating as hell. Glad you got yours to work, from scratch!
Definitely set up the web page – that's awesome!
so the mars landings really were fake… just kidding, great job!
Very cool. I like your stuff and will definitely be back to check out more.
this still looks awesome!
If I didn't know before hand that this was homemade I never would have been able to tell.
you are a very crafty fellow
This is quite simply, seriously cool!
So simple and yet so awesome. Great stuff.
Haha thats awesome!!
