It’s been a few months since I’ve seen a good hack for cramming an Eee PC into an automobile dashboard. Fortunately, another Russian hacker who has what I can only assume are some mad skills and way too much time on his hands, has posted an article showing exactly how to take a 7 inch Eee PC apart and turn it into a carputer that hooks into an auto stereo system and even acts as a graphic equalizer.
The finished product is an auto computer with 1GB of RAM, 4GB of built in storage plus an 8GB SDHC card, a 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel display, Bluetooth, a slot-loading DVD-RW drive, GPS, 5.1 channel audio, a touschreen, and a boatload of USB adapters that string the whole thing together. All in all, I dare say this guy’s car probably has more features than the average desktop PC. Plus, you know, you can drive it places.
