    ¨ Road Runner

    ¨ Hauppauge WinTV USB-FM

    ¨ XMPCR XM radio

    ¨ Color Video camera with RCA input, 12 volt power, and IR (night vision)

    ¨ QWERTY Mini USB keyboard

    Next steps for the computer

    There is another article in Wired this month about a corvette with a PC, but it never covers the specs of the pc.... only the owner...... supposedly he can turn on and off the exhaust baffles with his touchscreen.......
