Car Hacker's Development Kit for Massdrop!



Hey! We are extremely excited to announce that Carloop will be dropping tomorrow on Massdrop! Carloop is the ultimate programmable OBD-II dongle. Completely open source with a growing community of Car Hackers! When you combine Carloop with Particle Photon or Particle Electron, you can access all CAN signals on your vehicle and send data to the Particle cloud.
We will be offering a Massdrop Exclusive product called the Carloop 3G at a discounted price!
Some things people have done with Carloop:
  • GPS Tracking Device
  • Oil Change reminder via SMS, IFTTT or Webhook
  • Mileage Tracker
  • Custom Dashboards and Car Displays
Here's an explainer video:

Would love to hear your thoughts and comments!

So what I hear you saying is that now I can brick my car? :-)
Does this give you access to drive train management parameters like ignition timing, variable valve timing, transmission shift points, etc? Reccommended flavor of Linux? Ubunto?
