You see anything innovative here? I'd like to call that Innovation in Motion aka Da Jeepney! featuring an overhead CD-ROM drive.

I have a friend who did this to his car. It wasn't that hard since cars come with molex plugs. I'm not sure if he used a stepdown regulator. He also cut a hole near the pedals and installed an 8cm fan as an exhaust fan (I forgot what it was for).

Another friend who ripped videos for a friend who went to the trouble of crafting a case for a "china" VCD player (this was years back) and television set. It was installed in a pickup.

One more, another friend installed an extra battery connected to an alternator to power 2.1 speakers. It was connected to his Creative Muvo.

I also got to ride a tricycle with an audio CD player.

Very fascinating. It's like the local version of MTV's "Pimp My Ride". Pinoy's are so good with auto fabrication and interior, it just needs more exposure.

I wonder what happened to the air-conditioned jeepneys.
