The cars you see in commercials might not be real

The Blackbird is a shape-shifting car with camera rig that can mimic almost any vehicle. Created by the Mill – a VFX and creative content studio, the blackbird was designed to simplify the production of car commercials.

It has a programmable electric motor that can imitate the acceleration curves and gearing shifts of almost any vehicle. The adjustable chassis can match the length and width of almost any vehicle and the adjustable suspension replicates other driving characteristics.

On the board camera array maps a surrounding area. A combo of high-dynamic range imagery and 3D laser scanning generates a virtual environment; designers then render the make and model of the vehicle they want to add to the environment. The results are pretty convincing.
