Submission + - On the road, mobile communications and power station

loggiew writes: I am going on the road for a while with a popup camper and I can't bear to live without the net. Power is a huge issue. I'm IT. Just like you, I cannot live without. I've decided to start with a Raspberry Pi. I've been looking at the modules for interconnecting arduinos and additional modules like a cell radio.

With that and the 720p developer glasses below for $300, I'm estimating I can get the power consumption for my PC work down bellow 10 watts with a full home theater.

With solar panel prices through the floor and computer power consumption at an all time low, I'm planning to install ipfire and asterisk on this device. Full VoIP, routing, cell access, and the ability to cluster arduino/PI combo's for very low power means I should have all the computing power I need. What would you do with it? 3g/4g/satalite options available and a remote server available, what crazy ideas can we do to trick out my truck?
