Car’s Dashboard Hacked to Display Shower Thoughts #ArduinoMonday
Because everybody wants Reddit in their car? Shower thoughts at least. What if this entire car is the lost roller scate of a Celestial who will never make it into the Marvel Cinematic Universe? — via Arduino Blog
The Shower Thoughts subreddit is a collection of all those ideas or philosophical questions that race through your mind while in the bathroom…. While most folks would simply browse Reddit on their phones or laptops, Harin De Mel decided to something a bit different. He managed to hack his vehicle’s dashboard to display some of the best thoughts from the last hour. Not a bad idea for when you’re stuck in traffic or sitting in the car waiting for someone to come outside, right?
He used Raspberry Pi and an Arduino, both of which are interfaced with an MCP2515 — one for the display, the other to receive signals from the original network. A Wi-Fi dongle on the Raspberry Pi enables Internet connectivity.
