Nice bike computer build using a Raspberry Pi and a kindle from IEEE Spectrum.
Conventional bicycle computers display information about current speed and distance traveled, but their small displays can be hard to read. By upgrading a battery-powered Raspberry Pi with wifi and GPS, IEEE Spectrum’s David Schneider is able to turn a standard Kindle into a touchscreen-based bike computer, complete with easy to read speed, distance, and navigation data.
For the full story of this homebrew bike computer look for the Hands On article “Taking Your Pi” for a ride in the August issue of IEEE Spectrum.
