Of all the ways to catastrophically break a Sega Rally Championship Arcade cabinet, Artica’s hack at Portuguese hackathon Codebits earlier this month must surely go down as the most creative. With the addition of an Arduino board and an XBee RF module, the cabinet was made to race two camera-equipped radio-control trucks around the floor at Codebits VI.

With the addition of an XBee wireless radio frequency module, the cabinet is ready, in theory, to communicate with a radio-controlled truck. In practice, the truck needed to be modified with a receiver allowing signals from the Arduino board to be mapped to the truck’s wheels, throttle and a video switch.
