K.I.T.T Responding To Temperature Sensor inputs 3

Ah my sweetie is such a trooper helping me do a little test video of how K.I.T.T.s temperature sensor works. Bloody cold out on the front porch today and she was standing out there in her pyjamas just to help me out. I'm so luck to have someone who loves to do things like that just to help me out, She is so awesome ;) Anyways as you can see the temperatures sensor is very accurate and very responsive to temperature changes and then reads out that data on the U.I. Once the temperature fall below a predetermined value it will provoke a response from K.I.T.T. I have this set up as an audio clip array so that each time he will respond with a random voice clip... right now I just have the once but i'll add more as I either get or make them ;)

K.I.T.T.s CPU A Real Possibility

Way back when the television show Knight Rider was on, K.I.T.T. was the "Car of The Future". Much in today technology has changed, things have gotten smaller and yet more powerful. Today computers are so much more advanced and smaller now than ever before. In the T.V. show K.I.T.T.s CPU was featured as a small box that fit into the palm of your hand. There are many such very powerful computers on the market today that are about the same size that can be easily made to look like K.I.T.T.s CPU like the ones in this article I came across.

UPDATE: April 5, 2016

My sweetie found out about this while watching some YouTube last night and although I knew about Rasberry Pi and was wondering about the possibility of using it to run our Knight O.S. app looking at this link makes me think it could be possible.
