Scene tag

The gearbox of the (at least some/current-model) Prius. In the real car, the inner and outer gears are driven by electric motors and the middle ring by the gas engine. See here:
http://eahart.com/prius/psd/
for more—hard to explain.

That animation is much better for understanding how it works, but I thought I'd recreate it in Phun.

Also, first scene!

EDIT: Forgot to include controls:

Left/Right/Down—control outer gear. (Fwd/Rev/Brake)
A/D/S—control inner gear
Shift/Ctrl—control ring (Fwd/Brake only, as it would be in real life).

Also, the ring is only a gear because that was easier than using CSG to make a non-toothed ring.

This thing is weird.. the inner teeht of the blue circle fullfill no obvious reason and the red wheels also don't turn.. basically you can't see much unfortunately
The inner teeth are there because I used the gear tool as a shortcut to make a ring. Ignore that. And the red wheels do turn, but only when the the inner and outer rings are spinning at different speeds.

I'll edit.
