When playing something like GTA, the third-person view is always a good way to see what obstacles are ahead of you (and what cops are behind). With some free time on their hands, the people at Rooster Teeth felt like doing a cheeky experiment in seeing whether or not a real vehicle could be driven in that third-person perspective. They put a Canon 5D Mark II DSLR on a bar attached to the back of a pick-up truck, then routed the video to an LCD in the front sea and blacked out the truck’s windows.
Did it work? Check the video out and see for yourself. For me, I’ll be sticking to the third person in Mario Kart, not on the highway.
