Pimp My Corolla

PC Mag has an interesting, if not exactly practical,
build
guide
on how to turn your car into a rolling high tech office.
Included are:

  1. DeLorme Earthmate GPS LT-20
  2. Matrix Orbital VFD
  3. Hauppauge WinTV USB tuner
  4. Pentax DSMobile USB scanner
  5. Gyration GO 2.4 Optical Air Mouse and Compact Keyboard
    Suite
  6. Card reader/USB hub
  7. EarthLCD 10-inch touch screen
  8. HP Deskjet 460
  9. Desktop shredder
  10. Infinity Kappa component speakers
  11. Kyocera KPC650 EV-DO PC Card
  12. Lenovo ThinkPad T43
  13. Lenovo Port Replicator II
  14. Infinity Reference 7541A amplifier

Obviously, these components, for the most part, were not
designed with the idea of being used in a car. Hence, while
it is possible to replicate what PC Mag did, whether this is
a SmartIdea is another thing. Is it really a GoodThing to
have all this stuff in a car? Wouldn’t watching a TV
show/surfing the ‘Net/editing a document, while driving, be very
stupid things to do? YMMV. Insert disclaimer here.

  1. Nice idea. But then you lock your car with the keys inside 🙂
