A practical, portable car computer design
By Douglas J. Hickok
What do you think of when I say “car computer”? An expensive special piece of hardware that’s permanently mounted in a hidden spot in your car? Probably? For the last six months, I’ve been designing and building a portable computer. By portable, I mean it can be plugged in as an ad-hoc server, workstation, media player, or GPS navigator just about anywhere — including my car. Even though it was designed mostly as a car computer, who said it had to stay in my car? And at the cost of a typical desktop system, why should it stay on my desk? Car computers aren’t just for the rich anymore?
