Introduction: Little Car - Office Box

About: If you like simple solutions then here you can find some of my crazy ideas.

This is my most sophisticated project I ever made.

I needed more than 100 working hours (for building + video editing)

The video is divided into 4 parts, every as short as possible.

    Really interesting. A brilliant video that doesn't need narrative as everything you need to know is clearly shown.
