via Raspberry Pi Pod
Self-described “avid hacker” Adam Ringwood has taken realism to new heights by connecting his real car up to a game of Mario Kart 64, running on a laptop. The reading of OBD-II telemetry data from the car’s onboard computer is done by a Raspberry Pi and a PiCAN2 add-on board. The readings are processed and converted into control signals by the Pi and then transmitted to the laptop. The steering wheel controls the steering of the Kart whilst other events, for example from windshield wipers, headlights, brakes control other aspects of the game such as the ‘jump’ command.
