A few pieces fell in place over the last 24 hours that are calling me to make this project. I was gifted an awesome 1:16 scale Ferrari Enzo RC car, and in hacker form, I want to mash it together with a Seeed Studio Linkit ONE. I will be acquiring another one than the one I have in my Lego case v3, as I love that one so.
I took some pre-conversion pictures so that I can do a full build log.
Since the LinkIt ONE has GPS, I plan on having a data recorder in it. I will also leverage wifi and bluetooth for connectivity. I also like the idea of using the audio out to drive a speaker to add realistic sounds. Vroom!!
I would love to design a distance sensing array to give this outright automation abilities. I will be trying very hard to keep the look and feel of the original shell, so that adds a lot of restrictions on placement and size. I have hope, and will post updates on my IR blaster arrays.
