Its a convertible!
posted November 3 2010 5:25.18 by Giorgos Lazaridis

It looks like that Lyshco is more than a fan of racing games, such as the Dirt 2 rally. But setting up the cockpit was too time consuming for him. So he made a convertible cockpit. The outlook is an Ottoman style sit. But when the wife is away, the top opens and the cockpit is ready for the driver! There is no bucket seat, instead an old school plastic chair, but is fine for the moment. The steering wheel is mounted on the 2 sides of the cockpit, and the pedals (which are chopped out of their original plastic base) are fixed onto the base. The size of the cockpit is 1500 x 500 x 500 (size in millimeters) and it is made of MDF wood 18mm. Here is the post he made for this project.

Kurt Schulz
has a scooter, a plain ordinary scooter which transports him around the city.
One day he decided to make a simple battery state indicator for his scooter, while he builded it in a nights time he saw a screen, a TouchShield Slide OLED display with touch screen.
That screen must go to the scooter he though but what to do such a screen if the only thing in it is a mere battery state?
So Kurt added time and date, temperature, lean gauge with resettable max L-R indicators, current speed, resetta...

Remote car engine start using Cell Phone
posted April 10 2010 6:15.25 by Giorgos Lazaridis

A simple method to start your care remotely. This dude has used the output from the pager/vibrator to control the start circuit. During an incoming ring, the pager will send a pulse to the circuit. If 2 pulses are sent within 3 seconds, then the engine will start. Same sequence for shutting down the engine.
