Illustration for article titled Now You Can Have the Real Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

In the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, the most indispensible form of technology is the Hitchhiker's Guide itself, a pocket computer containing information (some of it wildly inaccurate) about every place in the galaxy. Now the good people at Instructables have a posted a cool project that lets you create your very own Guide — just get crappy old handheld PC, stick Linux on it, and fill it entirely with Wikipedia. Presto, your own somewhat-inaccurate computerized guide to everything in the galaxy. Don't forget your towel! [Instructables via Hackaday]
