This really does give a whole new meaning to “drive-by shooting”. If only all drive-by’s involved SuperSoakers and Arduino’s. This is a collaborative piece between our own Jonah Brucker-Cohen, Katherine Moriwaki, and Basurama. You can check out the SuperSoaker Car Organ August 8, 2008 at RUS (Urban Solid Waste) exhibition, Miami, Florida, USA.

The “SuperSoaker Car Organ” was built with the entire right side paneling of a Toyota 4Runner SUV that was mounted on wooden beams from the back that supported its weight. The outside panel was created with red duct tape and conductive aluminum foil tape to serve as a large-scale circuit board attached to the switches controlling the instruments and the inputs to turn on the lights. An Arduino controlled the lighting sequences when it sensed input from the closed switches and triggered a blinking pattern that went off in timed intervals.
