I have a new car on order, delivery in a few months, and have taken the option of Multimedia screens for the second row passengers.
These are just the screens though with analog inputs (composite, RCA, whilte-red-yellow, .... what's in a name ).

I am looking for two devices to use in the car to watch movies (and if possible play games) to entertain the kids on long trips (5 & 8 years of age).
Power requirements need to be quite low though since these have to run from the 12V cigarette lighter.
My first idea was to run a pair of Raspberry Pi's with RaspBMC and Retropie on them, add a BT and a Wifi adapter, put a small router with an HDD in the trunk and configure them with a PS3 wireless controller. It does require quite some fiddling, setup and troubleshooting in order to get all of this working though ...
Secondly I was thinking of an Ouya + XMBC on it ..; but this doesn't have an analog output ...
Next in line I turn myself to Android devices which could prove great candidates for my intended use, but I am completely lost in the vast amount of devices available ... especially the ones which could tick all the boxes.
All advice and experiences would be greatly appreciated !
