A makeshift electric utility/art cart capable of transporting some cargo or 1-2 persons to slightly reduce the amount of manual labor required during build and to have some fun during the week.
The idea is to create a mobile EPAL pallet which can move itself across 2D-ish areas of The Borderland controlled by a driver sitting/standing on it or walking besides. It will be possible to use it just as a mean of transportation for stuff and people, but that's not all. In addition, it will allow to move with reduced amounts of sweat all sorts of things, such as sound system, small light installation, or maybe a smoke machine - who knows what kind of ideas come to people's minds!
The design is very rough and minimalist yet functional, and reflects unique style of WCH Engineering Laboratories. Just like the Mars Rover, but for Borderland.
Currently the project is in stage of initial prototyping.
I will bring everything but the pallet itself and do the final assembly in the quarry.
I develop electronics for food and build light installations for fun.
Pallet will be recycled or scraped, depending on it's final condition. Motors & electronics will be a part of other similar projects.

People can co-create with the BorderRover by making their dreams more mobile for a while. You can come with ideas what could be put on the cart - a bathtub or a DJ booth?
You can also help me with the build and spare parts (maybe there is a dusty hoverboard in your shed?).
Hey friend! Welcome to the virtual drawing board of The Borderland. This is the place where we prototype the projects we'll realise during the week in the quarry.
