Self-named Queen of shitty robots, Simone Giertz, has again accomplished the impossible. While she has been my hero for quite some time, who can’t be stopped by anything, not even a brain tumor, and who is constructing robots that are not really doing what they are supposed to do, which anyways doesn’t matter at all, turned her brandnew Model 3 into a pickup truck. She didn’t want to wait any longer for Tesla to launch the pickup truck. A woman of action.
For that endeavor she got some YouTube-celebrities from the maker scene together, including Rich “Doctor Frankenstein of Teslas” Benoi, to saw off parts of her Model 3 and add a truckbed. The result is as interesting as hilarious. Truckla!
My favorite scene? When she swings the charging cable like a lasso above her head.
Here a behind-the-scene-view, of how the project went started. If you haven’t subscribed to Simone yet, do it here.
