I turned this car into a COMPUTER MOUSE


William: Hey, it’s me! William Osman, here today with… Simone: It’s me! Simone! Welcome to my house. W: So, what are we doing? S: You offered to turn my car into a computer cursor. W: Alright, we’re gonna go look at Simone’s car. Is it fast? S: Dianna has worn that too. W: Really? S: Yeah W: Well, I guess we can figure out who wore it better. Alright, let’s go! S: We’re just like getting straight to it. W: Mhm. You got something better to do? S: No. Oh, my gosh! W: This feels a little revealing. S: It is! W: I gotta like, kinda rearrange. [superhero music] W: My breathing is like, definitely being restricted. S: They’re like –
W: I also feel like my shoulders are being pulled up. This was a mistake. Nice car, by the way. S: Thank you! W: I noticed that the door doesn’t quite close all the way It looks like a Disney Land car. S: I’m like a parent where people could slap an image of Cheese Louise onto anything and I’d want it. W: *chuckles* Yeah? S: It could be like – W: Like a toothbrush? S: Yeah W: Hey, I just decide, can you unzip this a little bit? S: Really? W: *wheezes* *sigh* That’s a relief. S: I have not driven it in a while because I need to fix the brakes. I pulled out the fuse to the horn, ‘cus it was like… really… W: Alright, I’ll do it. MEERRRR S: Your crew really trusts me not bumping into their knees. W: You should break that trust. On a scale of 1-10, how safe is this car, Simone? S: Oh, not at all. No. If I would die in Cheese Louise, I would still be kind of happy because I love Cheese Louise so much. I wish I could be buried with her. W: They’d have to like ziptie your hands to the steering wheel. S: Yeah. This is how I would die. And I would just like drive myself down into the hole. W: That’s really morbid. S: Yeah W: It like they put you on a ramp and its just like: thunk, thunk, thunk S: Yeah W: We might wanna put the mouse – Oh yeah, that’s what we’re doing. We can go back into the workshop now. [superhero music] W: What are we doing Simone? S: I don’t know. You are – I’m just waiting for you to take action! W: Do you have a dremel? S: There’s a – How old are you? W: Guess. S: 24 W: No. [censor beep] S: Yeah, when you’re my age, you’ll understand that you need to – W: How – What kind of diapers do you buy? Like, is there a brand you prefer like, when I start getting up in years like you. S: Yeah? For when you get leaky? W: Yeah, right yeah S: I mean, like W: Well, leakier. S: Most women wear diapers once a month. W: I know what you’re talking about. I don’t know very much about it. Thank you. S: What’s your favorite tool? W: Laser cutter S: Yeah? W: I don’t have one anymore, though. Where are your plugs? They’re all taken. [funky beats/dremel] S: I’m just like sitting here and looking. W: I feel like this is one of those jobs that is you have two people try to do it at the same time you end up making things… S: I don’t even know how we would collaborate on that. W: That’s what I’m saying, you know? Then you end up with like your fingers bleeding… S: Can I have – No. Can I – Can I… Snatch? W: Yeah S: Should I draw a picture of a cat? W: Yeah and we’ll give it away to someone on my Patreon and they’ll be super happy. S: I love your protective hand W: I don’t want to get your floor dirty. I’d rather get the shrapnel stuck in my hand. S: I have a vacuum. I have a shop vac. W: Oooh! It smells like peanuts. S: It would be really bad if your vacuum smelled like penis. I mean, also – W: No , peanuts! text-to-speech voice: but William, how does the mouse work? [superhero music] W: Very exciting, huh? You can’t really see what’s going on. There’s a Arduino Leonardo in between this mouse, which is an old PS 2 mouse. Not like a Play Station mouse. I don’t know why it’s called PS 2. Then a magnetometer. So both are hooked up because we’re going to Simone’s. *fast forwarded speech* So, right now, we gotta keep building this mouse then we’re gonna do all the electronics and programming and then bring it there and figure out how to put it on her car. W: Okay, post-post-post-production William here. Why you didn’t you explain this better pre-post-post-post-production William? First, the old PS 2 mouse gets a new lens to move it away from the ground. Then, we connect it to an Arduino but the problem is a mouse mounted to a car will only read up or down, even when the car is turning. Unless you’re drifting. To measure which direction the mouse needs to move, we have a magnetometer acting like a compass and some simple tigineum- Wait. You know what, I’m just going to read this one off the script. To measure which direction the mouse needs to move, we use a magnetometer like a compass and some simple trigonometry. Oh. Also, we connected mouse click to the horn. MEERRRR S: But that – So that’s how we’re clicking? W: That’s how we’re clicking. S: That’s so good. W: We didn’t to have cut wires. We didn’t have to drill holes. It just clips on and bada-bing! S: Bada-bing-bing-bing! Cheese wedge is now a mouse. W: Bada-bing, bada-boom? S: I don’t – I don’t know these things. [superhero music] text-to-speech voice: meow let’s accomplish some tasks W: The world’s biggest computer mouse. Is this the world’s biggest computer mouse, do you think? S: I don’t know! W: I haven’t done any research but let’s make that claim. We build the world’s biggest computer mouse. Alright, hand them over! S: Oh, the keys are already in. [hip-hop music] [buckling up] [hip-hop music] S: Yaaas! W: Nice! S: Nice! Alright. W: Oh! Oops. We’re gonna send an email to Dianna. S: Our friend Dianna. Physics Girl. We’re gonna try and attach a photo that we just took. We need to rang her first, but wait. Wait wait. W: Oh yeah S: My hands are off. We have a little computer pad W: Oh, where’s the cup? Is he behind me? Oh, hey! The keyboard’s covered. Where am I clicking? S: You need to click so you have the email open. Yeah. W: We clicked on the email and now we’re gonna type a message. S: What are you gonna write? W: Ah, what should we write? Do you have any ideas? S: “Hi” W: That’s a good start. You have to help guide me. S: No. Uhhh, okay. Okay. “Dear”… I have no idea how to guide you! “Hi”! Uhhh, “hi” is to the right. Okay. Ah! Stop! Ah! Back up! W: Go forward. S: What? Yeah! W: Aaah! W: Yeah!
S: Yes! S: Click! *toot* W: *laughter* Yes! This is awesome!
S: *wooh!* S: We have an “H.” We have an “H.” W: Alright. Now we need – Where is? – Alright, “I” is going to be that way? S: Yes. Like right up there by the skater kids. Aaaaah… Yes! *toot* x8 Hi! Hiiiiiiii! W: Okay, then, Dianna? S: Uh, no. We can skip that. W: But that’s, oh, do we have to get the picture? Where is the picture? S: It, the picture is here on the desktop. W: Oops. I gotta turn around. I feel like we’re gonna run these skaters over. That’s where the picture is. S: Yeah, the picture’s up here in the top right. W: I don’t think we’re gonna be able to get there. I think we gotta do a loop around to like shift the mouse. Man, these guys don’t like us. Where is our cursor? S: It’s all the way down by the trash! Okay, you think you can get it off the… W: Yes! S: Yeah, we’re on a good direction. We’re doing good.We’re going good! We’re almost there! Okay, but then we’re gonna hold on W: Okay, so then which way are we gonna go? Do we have to go that way? S: Stop. We’re gonna have to go that way. No. We’re gonna have to wrong direction ‘cus that is up and that is down. W: And that’s S: So that’s gonna be over there – I think we’re gonna have to go over there. The thing is the horn overheats, so we’re gonna have to be quick. W: We can take pauses and we can like slowly drag it closer and closer. S: No, because it auto sorts. W: Oh. *toooooooooooot* S: Yes! Holding it really – W: Is it that way? S: I don’t know, it’s not moving. W: Why isn’t it… S: I don’t know, I’m sorry. It went… Did we kill it? Press the mouse. *toot* W: I think we killed the connection. S: Yeah W: Are you on my laptop? Let’s change it really quick. [hip-hop music] W: Okay S: Okay! You got this? W: *nervous chuckle* I think so. S: Click! *toooooo-* *-oooooo-*
S: Yes! Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! *-oooooo-*
Ah! No! Eh-heh! *-oooooo-*
W: Is that close enough? *-oooooo-*
S: We’re gonna hit the – No! *-oooooot*
W: Ah, did we break it again? W: Aagh!
S: Agh! It was so close! W: Why did it stop? S: I don’t know! W: What did I do wrong? It made it farther this time, though. S: It did. It definitely made it father. W: Umm… Do we just cheat? *cheering* S: So, now we need to hit send W: Okay, so we gotta cover the, cover the mouse pad so that way people don’t think we’re cheating even though we literally just cheated and admitted to it. Alright, navigator! Where shall that we go? S: Uuh, there and there? Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah! It’s working! Now we’re going in a nice little circle! W: Alright, Dianna! S: Dianna, you’re gonna get an email. W: Watch out. Email coming in hot. S: The thing is, this is such a normal email. We could have naturally just sent this. W: Wait, what were we supposed to – S: Oh, yeah, yeah! We’re gonna send it. Wait. Uh, a little but further just in the same… Yeah A little bit up whatever way that is. Yeah! S: Aaah!
W: Aaaah! S: Honk!
*toot* Ay! It says no subject, send anyway W: We should have written a subject! Both: *chuckles* W: No! Both: *chuckles* S: You’re like taking the long way. W: Well, ’cause the problem is we were like stuck in that circle loop that you can’t get out of. We need some distance incoming. S: Yeah! Okay, okay! Yeah, yeah, yeah. You’re going – You’re right on track! W: And do we just fly by it and smack the horn when we… S: Yeah. *toot* Both: *cheering* S: Oh, there’s no internet connection! Why? Noo! W: Okay, that’s close enough. S: Yeah, that was a success. W: And now we’re going to film you drawing a portrait of… S: Cheese Louise [hip-hop music] W: Uuuuh… S: No! Don’t crash it! I mean, it works really well, but.. W: Except for the part where it stops working? S: Where it stopps working.
