Nissan 'rave station' hits the road
By: Dave Abrahams
Berlin, Germany - This, fellow party animals, is the Part e-Van, a mobile rave station based on a battery-powered Nissan e-NV200.
It's been created by Nissan as a demonstration of just how much is possible with current electronics and audio technology using a pure electric vehicle as an interactive mobile billboard.
It even has a solar panel array in the shape of a disco ball on the roof that helps to power an augmented reality system where users will be able to jump into their own party scene before sharing it with friends on social media custom-made sound system.
CUSTOM-MADE SOUND SYSTEM
There's a DJ booth on the roof with a custom-made sound system that includes silent disco capabilities, a six metre high light-up canopy, two independent augmented reality screens on the side panels of the vehicle that allow users to join their own party in a virtual reality, an LED dance floor at the back, a fridge for drinks and a cocktail maker that supplies electric-inspired cocktails.
It'll play its first gig on Saturday night for football fans outside the Olympiastadion, before the kick-off of the UEFA Champions League Final. Then it'll go on a road show with its second stop at the Le Mans 24 Hour endurance race, before travelling throughout Europe.
