I've been saving this post about the folks at Carlab turning an 09 VW Schirocco into a game for a lazy Sunday and since it's Sunday and I'm feeling lazy here's it is. It turns out that just by a little hacking into the control box for the car a little bit you can gain access to all the information about the car and it's various inputs. Add in a little bit of elbow grease and you can turn it into the best PC simulator controller of all time. Check out the video:
Keep in mind that they didn't do a lot to the car to get this to work, just a little bit of tinkering with the diagnostics in the car
, some custom software and it was up and running. Your mileage may vary by the kind of car you get but this is still pretty cool stuff.
