BMW E30 M3 modified to function as a Gran Turismo game controller

Photos published to Canadian car enthusiast blog gawa from a recent tour of Japan revealed a BMW E30 M3 modified to function as a Gran Turismo game controller with a massive LCD HDTV built into the hood. The work was done by Studie garage as a tribute to one of the workers' favorite games, and is available to play for free in Studie's Yokohama headquarters.

Studie is a Japanese garage and performance tuning house that builds and installs their own custom performance build kits. Rumor has it that the coupé's steering wheel, clutch and foot pedals are modified to control the game, though chances are the fine folks at Studie just bolted a Logitech wheel into the dash instead. The PS3 peripheral BMW M3 holds center stage on the main show floor as a playable attraction for guests, but no word on whether or not the car is still operational as anything other than a glorified racing wheel.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
