Before He Founded Megaupload, he made the Megacar
Kim Dotcom wasn't all about fraudulent activities. In 1999, his DataProtect company and an engineering firm called IVM partnered on a highly networked and high-tech car called the Megacar. Using an Audi A8 as a base, the Megacar sported a Windows NT server, a 17.3" SGI flat panel display, and 16 GSM modules to provide on-the-go Internet. It was ahead of its time, and seemingly the only legal endeavor undertaken by Dotcom.
