HyundaiKitCoupe  : (20 March 2017 - 03:36 PM) If you drove an Integra GS-R it looks like a Tuner car. If you drive a Tiburon RD1 it looks closer to a Boxster, 911, or Audi TT..
HyundaiKitCoupe  : (20 March 2017 - 03:34 PM) Yeah if you give me a Civic, a Celica, an Eclipse, Prelude, Integra, any of those cars--I'll take a Tiburon. It looks like a Porsche, looks awesome inside and out, looks and feels high-end.
Im Going Space  : (20 March 2017 - 07:24 AM) but where the civic fails, the coupe wins, looks :P
Im Going Space  : (20 March 2017 - 07:23 AM) no, but it would be nice to see what would have come of the system if we had some real support
JonGTR  : (20 March 2017 - 07:22 AM) Even back in 96, even if it had tons of support, it never had a chance.
Im Going Space  : (20 March 2017 - 07:22 AM) but where hyundai sold 100,000 cars, honda sold millions
JonGTR  : (20 March 2017 - 07:21 AM) It can never put out the power of a Honda or Toyota.

Shedding a bit of light off Rovio

Icon Leave Comment
I have a Rovio Mobile webcam. It is a pretty cool toy. However it's lighting is not nearly bright enough. I trippled the light by adding a copule of LEDs to it. Here's how I did it.


This is my rovio disassembled. You can see the circuit board which is glued in place there. It takes the original lighting circuit and draws power from a separate source. It's a transistor which is hooked directly to the battery and uses the original LED power wire as a signal wire. The new wire is routed up the neck of the Rovio Mobile webcam.

And the other side

Here is a closeup of the small transistor circuit board.

The LEDs were positioned in the head right where they should be, on either side of the webcam.

Here you can see my phone controlling the Rovio and a picture of my hands holding the camera on the phone, controlling my rovio mobile camera.

It was a fun project.
