Anyone for Pi? Mods and hacks for the Raspberry Pi

This hobbyist is building an in-car computer, or carputer, by combining a Raspberry Pi with a rather nifty slide-out screen.

You can see a video showing the Pi booting up the XBMC media centre software on the system.

Other hobbyists working on building a Pi-based carputer are planning to hook a webcam up to the device to create a black-box recorder for the vehicle.
