Mark the date in your calendar for a fun day of looking at some great modified cars and checking out Brainiac and the BatBerry in person! On August 22nd Workshop 12 will be attending as an exhibitor at ImportFest 2015 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from 12 noon – 12 midnight.
I’ve personally attended ImportFest many times as a competitor with the TMBLER shop car winning multiple awards such as top Subaru and best paint. So I’m really excited that we’re now going to be attending the event as an exhibitor with both of our Brainiac prototype cars; the BatBerry and the TMBLER.
It should be easy to find us since we’ll be located smack dab in the center of the show with both of our vehicles and two additional display units. Both vehicles will have their early prototype Brainiac installs on display. The BatBerry will showcase a 7″ touch screen utilizing Brainiac’s accessory capability to control many of its systems such as opening and closing the canopy, the actuators that raise and lower its 30 caliber replica machine guns and some more functionality that we’ll reveal closer to the show.
Our widebody Subaru will be displaying our 10.1″ Brainiac installation for a 05-07 Subaru WRX/STI which provides a large screen full-console experience with factory fit and finish.
While show cars are great, they don’t really let you try things out for yourself. Most car shows have a strict “look but don’t touch” policy when it comes to the vehicles. Because of this we’re also bringing two standalone dashboard units so that you can physically interact with Brainiac. We’ll have one dashboard with a standard double-din 7″ installation and a 05-07 Subaru WRX/STI dashboard with a 10.1″ Brainiac unit installed.
This event will provide an opportunity for you to try out Brainiac in person and provide early feedback on the prototype units as we continue to fine tune our hardware and software as we continue to push towards commercial availability. We hope to see you there 🙂
