The Most Complete DIY Mobile Office You Will See All Day

The 35-year-old driver of this car was pulled over for doing 130 kph (80 mph) in a 100 kph (62 mph) zone. When police got to the car they saw a mobile office setup that at least one of the officers felt compelled to share with the world.

The nameless man had built a wooden frame that sat on his passenger seat and which held a laptop on a docking station (tilted for driver access), a printer, routher, wireless Internet dongle, WLAN antenna and an inverter that allowed him to power it all from his car’s cigarette lighter. On top of that, he had a navigation system and cell phone mounted to his windshield.

The speeding fine was a very reasonable 120 Euro ($153), he might also receive a fine for having unsecured items in his car.

Personally, I view my morning and evening drives to and from work as a great chance to disconnect from technology and relax. Driving is dangerous and complicated enough without all the distractions. That being said, there is no proof that this guy uses all of his equipment while driving. Maybe he parks his car first, like a responsible human being.
