TomTom GPS Re-purposing into Media Player

One of the fun things about electronics is that sometimes they can be used in ways not thought of by the designer, like the old Commodore 64 which many years later was used as a server. Another would be using a VCR to record a computer program in a series of black and white flashes and using it in place of a dataset recorder. (Another C-64 thing).

For this isn’t quite a movie about Bilbo (Martin Freeman) and his unexpected journey as much as it is just him being a small cog in an extremely large machine.
