Wrenching on cars is my version of Yoga. It’s where I escape and the rest of the world melts away. I’m able to think about the task at hand and be as creative as I want. I’ve realized that one of the things that drives me and makes me happy is creating “things”. Whether it’s software at work, working on home improvement projects or wrenching on my car.
One of “the most” screen accurate builds with an extreme attention to detail documented since day one!
This blog will follow my goal to build the ultimate smartphone accessory. This involves the vehicle’s auxiliary systems being powered and controlled by open source single board computers along with a remote application running on my smartphone.
So sit back and enjoy the ride 🙂
