    Question Origami UMPC+StreetDeck video/review, request for suggestions

    I wrote this as an introductory review to using StreetDeck with UMPCs.
    http://ultramobilegeek.blogspot.com/...-car-umpc.html

    It's just an introductory review because:
    a: I am awaiting the arrival of more professional mounting hardware:
    b: There are FAR too many features of StreetDeck to cover in one article/review.

    In my next segment (after the good mounting hardware arrives) I plan on covering:
    -- Navigation (if I can download or receive a copy of that component)
    -- Gesture control
    -- Car status monitoring (probably borrowing on others' forum posts)
    -- Radio or TV (I'll pick up a tuner)

    My question to the natives here:
    What else should I include? I have only spent a few hours toying around with StreetDeck and know there's a LOT more under the hood than I have listed. What are good modules or expansions of choice? How about good examples of them in your own rigs? I don't mind posting links that say "I didn't do this myself, but check out what THIS GUY did."

    I love all the safety warnings, both visual and verbal!
    Good man!

    He even wears his safety belt!
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Haha thanks!

    If you look at my other YouTube videos, you can see I used to be a fire eater/breather/juggler. I had some schtick where I'd kneel and hold a fire eating torch in my mouth while a buddy lit a cigarette off of it. The patter was: "Do not try this! It is very dangerous! SMOKING CAN KILL YOU."

    But really - people are lawsuit happy these days. Safety over entertainment and all that.

    I REALLY wanted to include gesture control in the video but .. um .. accidentally broke my fingernail while installing the UMPC. The touchscreen on the TabletKiosk eo v7110 requires a bit more than finger taps... stylus or a poke with a fingernail works best.

    I read about the UREN (pronounced "urine") PC. It has no front hardware buttons or a track cursor so the "more standard" umpc wins out for general use. Since it has a DMB tuner, it's probably Korea anyway. The US is too litigious to allow people TV tuners n the front seat.

    Perhaps that would be a good car computer as an all-in-one... but UMPC buyers are likely going to want to use their computer outside their car as well. I already have a UMPC and a bluetooth GPS.

    My focus is getting current on-the-market UMPCs to work well with StreetDeck. Along those lines, what would you suggest I test and cover?
