The ORB VOX display is run by a computer or CarPC.
PC: Reasonably modern PC (Pentium 4 / Athlon64 or above, multi-core processor recommended) running Windows 2000, XP, Server 2003, Server 2008 in either 32 bit or 64 bit version. (Sorry, vista is not supported.)
On top of that the VOX display orb is also a mini computer. It's a computer hooked up to a computer.

The one I am testing in the video is still a prototype, and it just a hair bit smaller than the real orb but I am getting some made just for this application that will be exact same size as the show car.
