Practical Problem Solving
In Car Bluetooth Audio Receiver – Here’s the link to the Belkin bluetooth audio receiver we used for this segment. at 5v 180ma it works great in just about any USB adapter for your car! – http://amzn.to/Vk4FYq

DIY Mobile Crash Cart — As mentioned in the episode, this mobile crash cart was built for around $100 dollars, and in my opinion has quite a bit more functionality than the USB crash carts that sell for nearly 5x that. It’s completely portable, and you don’t have to already have a laptop for this to function. I’ve made a change to the parts list, but most of the links should work, please let me know if you’re having difficulty finding anything or have any questions!
