@machine: I've seen that picture on a couple of sites. Amazing work that he's done...right?
Albatta, my own "pasand" would probably be a combination of the pictures you can see below. I'd like to retain some sort of originality of the dashboard / gauge cluster as seen in the first pic...but have the support, safety, and "shtyle" of the racing seats, like in the second pic. Of course, a sturdy roll-cage would be not only a safety necessity, but would add to the aesthetic qualities, too. Like any good off-roader which is meant to travel any amount of distance in this high-tech world, this should also have an in-dash GPS. The sound system should be terrific (capable of drowning out road / wind noise with the top down).
PTCL is offering a Tablet PC which comes with free unlimited broadband. The "EVO Tab"costs a little over Rs. 32,000 (which includes 12 months internet @ Rs 2000/- per month, total Rs. 24,000). The EVO is based on the Android OS, and has hundreds of thousands of free apps in the Android Market. It also comes with a front and rear facing camera setup, decent sound, beautiful 7 inch screen, and lightning-fast browsing / streaming. Because of its slender proportions, I am seriously thinking of modifying the dashboard so as to accommodate this touchscreen machine, which will become my entertainment system, navigation device, inclinometer, accelerometer, and virtual gauge cluster (I have heard of some apps that allow your device to be connected to the engine management system, and actually replace your temperature / oil pressure / battery gauges).
An important word of advice for all PWers who are about to rush out and buy a new EVO Tab: please give a lot of serious thought to this purchase before attempting it. The device has absolutely miserable battery life. iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch users wll find its responsiveness somewhat sub-par. The sound quality of the device isn't really comparable to some of the other great devices out there. The only reason I'm installing this (or am likely to install this): bewakoofon ki tarah, I rushed out and bought it, without waiting to hear the reviews! Ab, iss ko kahin na kahin lagana to hai, na!
Of course, along with the Tab, a good power amp would also be required. I think the ideal speaker combination would be 4:1. 2 door mounted heavy speakers, 2 dash-mounted tweeters, and a tub-mounted subwoofer / bass tube. Alternatively, you could have 2 additional speakers mounted in the bikini top hard fiberglass.
Hmmmm. Interesting brainstorming. Thank you, machine!
