Woodworker Turns AI Rendered Car Into The Real Thing

With over 17 years of writing experience, Jonathan has had a passion for all things tech-related, ever since watching Inspector Gadget as a child. He's disassembled countless appliances and managed to put a few back together, and one still works. When not writing, he can often be found playing video games or accidentally hurting himself in the garage.

After using an artificial intelligence program to render an out-of-this-world car, woodworker Trương Văn Đạo of the YouTube channel ND Woodworking Art got to work building a real-life version of the wheeled vehicle. Just look at that thing! Could you imagine if car manufacturers produced models that looked like this? Parking lots would be way less boring.

First, Trương constructed a custom electric-powered metal trike to serve as the vehicle’s chassis. Then, the woodworking began: cutting, chiseling, sanding, and staining all the decorative pieces by hand. I like how some of the wooden gears turn to make it appear like they’re making the car move. That was a nice touch. The wooden front wheels were also a nice touch, but probably not that nice for traction.

I wonder what the car’s top speed and range are. Do you think it’s practical enough to get to the grocery store and back? Asking for someone whose wife just informed him he forgot to get butter and chicken for making dinner tonight.
