Thanks to reader Sowbug, who sent us this nice tidbit about how he got Pac-Man running on his Papilio ArcadeÂ via Linux.Â Sowbug says, Check out Sowbug’s original blog post for an in-depth look at whatÂ went in toÂ the project, and for access to the fork he wrote for Linux.Â I have to say, I really like Sowbug’sÂ photo on that post.Â Great composition! On the same forum thread where this was discussed, the issue was raised about using a PS/2 keyboard for joystick functionality.Â I just remembered that Mike Field had some code pertaining to that in his Papilio Wiki . The specific entry, with code for usingÂ a PS/2 keyboard for joystick controls can be found here .
Like Jobs and Gates, we believe the PC is one of the most remarkable tools humans have ever created. Great tools improve with time. They don’t go away.

The GPS Car Computer can display a wide range of GPS related information. The feature list includes a speedometer with an over speed alarm, distance and time to destination, fuel economy meter, time, altitude, heading, compass and latitude/longitude. A USB 2.0 interface allows you to run software on your laptop that will pinpoint your position on a moving map. You can also load updated firmware via the USB interface. The physical size of the electronics (display + printed circuit board) is small enough that it can fit into many dashboards and (with a suitable front panel) will look as if it is part of the vehicle’s standard instrumentation.
