Geohot unveils new $88 accessory for hacking your car

Hacker and founder of comma.ai, George Hotz, has announced the launch of an $88 accessory for hacking your vehicle.

Dubbed panda, the accessory is a universal car interface that supports 3 CAN, 2 LIN, and 1 GMLAN. It plugs into the OBDII port on every car made since 1996. Panda can also charge a phone and on the computer side, it has both USB and Wi-Fi.

panda: the nicest universal car interface ever

In order to get the reliability and throughput we needed to make cars self driving, we started building our own interface hardware.

When we gave away the plans for our first self driving hardware, we included a custom car interface board. It interfaced two CANs with USB. But some cars needed more. So we built panda.
