Computers in our cars have been a dream of science fiction for a long time, but they’re still a pretty expensive addition, especially if you’re trying to add one into an old car. DIYer Andrei Istodorescu decided to add a computer into his car on his own with a Raspberry Pi and about $US200.
Istodorescu’s system is pretty feature-packed. The Raspberry Pi powers a media center for music, a touch screen display for navigating the library, a backup camera, and a GPS system. It’s all packed right into the car’s center console so it looks natural. It’s still a work in progress, but you can see Istodorescu’s full guide to doing this yourself and grab his custom Raspberry Pi images on his site.
