You’d be hard pressed to find anyone calling the Raspberry Pi the Ferrari of miniature computing but sure enough, someone has combined the two names together in a different way. Matthew Leigh, Managing Director of Infomagnet used an old Ferarri tape deck to house a Raspberry Pi. The intention was to continuing using the deck for its original purpose, so a HiFiBerry DAC was used alongside a Pi 3 for playback. The whole system fits snuggly into the deck as you can see from the photos below. To avoid the deck being nothing more than an enclosure, Matthew wired up the original fast-forward, rewind, pause and play controls to be used in conjunction with the Pi.
This is an incredible feat and shows just how far you can take the mini computer if you put your mind to it.
