As technology progresses, so too does the badass stuff you can do with it. Back in October, the ‘Spirit of Berlin’, an iDevice-controlled minivan stole the imaginations of stale/iDevice car-lovers everywhere. But, a 1969 GTO is ever so much cooler, and in some ways, so too is Dave Phipps, the chap who re-wired his 400$ hotrod. The GTO project uses tech called RedEye from ThinkFlood to control the car’s ignition, radio, doors, and more: a perfect melding of classic and new age tech.
Follow the gap for vid, piccies and more:
Right, so Mr. Phipps (got a nice ring to it, eh?) rewired the entire car. Right. There isn’t a single piece of original wire in the entire boat. He has been fixing up GTO’s since before I was cognisant of toothbrushes and including this badboy, he has ‘fixed’ up 14.
Unfortunately, there seems to be no mention of how this thing (which basically is a server-on-wheels) handles.
Anyway, enjoy the shots and vid.
