Connecting a Mazda RX-8 to the internet with an ALIX 1

This month we bring you a very cool case study from Jonathan Oxer, who used an ALIX 1 to connect his Mazda RX-8 to the internet, allowing him to remotely monitor and control his car.

Jonathan installed the ALIX 1 in the boot of his RX-8 and connected it to a variety of systems including the On-Board Diagnostics, ignition manager and audio system.

Read all about it on our case studies page.

Add a hard drive to your ALIX 1

ALIX 1 hard drive bracket coming soon

Our new ALIX 1 2.5″ hard drive bracket will be available very soon.

This extremely low profile adapter allows you to mount a 2.5″ hard drive in any of our ALIX 1 computers – either the ALIX 1 or the ALIX 1 “XL”.

It also fits into the PC Engines ALIX 1 case and can be installed in less than 30 seconds.

Designed right here at Yawarra, our new adapter is currently in production, so keep watching for this cool device, coming soon to a Yawarra online shop near you!

Extra bits

iMedia 6.0.4

We’ve now also added the embedded iMedia 6.0.4 image to our OS images page so you can download it and install it yourself on the ALIX 1 or ALIX 3 (with VGA).

ALIX 3 cases

We’ve also added photos and information about the ALIX 3 cases that we offer – the ALIX 3 case and the ALIX 3 Outdoor case – to our ALIX cases page for your viewing and reading pleasure. Enjoy!
