Playmates 1985 "Fun-to-Drive" converted to a playable gaming system, wow!


If you grew up in the 80's then you grew up in a time of cartoon and gaming wonder, with new systems such as the Amstrad, C64, ZX Spectrum, Amiga, NES and Cartoons such as the Teenage Mutant Turtles, Mask and even my favourite the Thundercats. But even the toys were great too, and it's the Playmates Fun To Drive Dashboard which lives on in many childhood memories, that has been given a overhaul by Gustav Wingburen as a fully playable Android/Mame system!


And that is most impressive indeed especially as after finding a playmates 1985 Fun to drive, he has converted it to an Android emulator via a min BT keyboard, with fully playable steering. No child of the time ever thought this possible, but now using this rather jaw dropping system, he was able to play games such as Mario Kart and even Outrun using the steering wheel to control the car, which in my opinion is a technical marvel!
