I've just started putting a computer into my 1960 Cadillac Hearse.
I'm writing my own interface (called C.H.U.D. - Computerized Hearse User Display - Gotta have an acronym, right? :p )
running a nano pc, 7" touchscreen
Here's the main menu - the mp3 player controls are across the top..
Effects (not completed) leads to the DAC to control the fog machines, lights and sirens, by the way.
Here's a few of the mp3 playlist editor - dynamically reading the drive in realtime as to have to not maintain a seperate database. I just let iTunes do all the importing and organizing.
The green ones are on the playlist. touch to add, remove.
Oh, and here's the volume control in action - lol
Just thout you guys may be intersted in a newbie's take on it.
oh - it's written in VB as well. Anyone have any pointers to or on WiFi APIs?
That is a friggin' cool ride. Any photos of your meatwagon? ;)
I've always wanted an older hearse or amnulance like early 60s, late 50s. Something like the one used in Ghostbusters.
Supposedly, Akroyd owns it and isn't about to give it up. ;)
The front-end looks cool, as well. I like the use of the skulls to flow with the whole hearse theme, too.
The hearse on the Effects button is mine :)
The GB car was a '59 I believe.
I'll post some pictures soon. Right now it's just at the beginning of it's cosmetic makeover. We've gutted it and are going to turn it into a limo in the rear. I run a commerical haunted house (The Baxter Avenue Morgue - www.13bats.com ) so it's going to be a showpiece for that.
Have you made a release date on this? BTW, Im in London, Ky
I have the interface done, and setup, just not installed in the car yet. I can't figure out where to put the screen. I suspect I am going to custom fab a dah panel as to not ruin the original look of the dash.
Oh, and here's a photo of Diedra...
