Intel chopper, a one of a kind

American Chopper to the rescue

| Posted: Jul 16, 2007 9:21 am

Intel Embedded has worked on a rather spectacular demo platform, in the shape of a choppser motorcycle built by the team from the Discovery channels American Chopper. Not only does it look absolutley amazing, but it's using an embedded Intel based computer to display things such as the speedometer and to control various aspects of it.

 

The embedded computer is a Black Diamond Switchback and not only does it have a speedometer, a tachometer, a voltage meter and battery voltage gagues, but it also features a rear-view camera, a web browser and a media player based on the StreetDeck infotainment platform, but it also features a finger print ID system that prevents unauthorised users from starting the chopper.

 

 

This has to be one of the coolest ways of showing of your technology and it shows what you can do with an embedded computer these days. It's a shame that this is a one of a kind machine, but hopefully we'll see more companies incorporating features such as this into their products.
