Car runs on Tweets, likes and shares

It’s a nice idea: hook up a vintage Volkswagen Karmann Ghia with Arduino so it can monitor social media buzz and literally run on tweets, hashtags, views and likes. It’s part of an exercise by non-profit MindDrive to engage at-risk youth by getting them to convert the Karmann Ghia car into an electric car. Hmm, probably best to bring lots of smart devices on the ride in case the car runs out of juice on the highway.
