Build Your Own Carputer

DO IT YOURSELF

A carputer, sometimes known as a CarPC, is a custom built PC system designed for use in a vehicle providing functionality such as DVD playback, MP3 playback, GPS navigation and much more. In reality, the only limitation is your imagination. One could even use a carputer for wardriving.

With the low-by-modern-standards power requirements for any of the above, a carputer needn’t be overly expensive or hard to cool. Handy optional extras will include the likes of a touch screen (otherwise a media center remote will suffice), a GPS receiver and a WiFi dongle (unless, of course, you choose a motherboard with integrated Wi-Fi).
