RX-8 controlled from an iPod Touch

www.geekmyride.org. Quick demo of accessing a web server linked to an Arduino in my RX-8 from an iPod Touch so it can be started, stopped, locked/unlocked, current location shown on Google Maps, and engine parameters displayed. More info at http://www.geekmyride.org/wiki/index.php/Jon’s_RX-8, or browse directly to the car itself at http://rx8.oxer.com.au/

  5. @x1expert1x I think …
    @x1expert1x I think something like 20% of the nearly 800 comments on this video say some variation of this idea. And no, it wouldn’t make any difference. As is explained in the video (and on the site linked to in the video info) there’s nothing special about that iPod. In fact I don’t even own one: I borrowed one from a friend to make the video. It could be any device, because it’s an online (web-based) interface

  6. Remember when …
    Remember when Jeremy Clarkson crashed Vauxhall whlie trying to drive from backseat? Now when you crash this mazda, you will have to write a mail to ensurance company.

    @TheAdvancedReviews Not to be rude, but perhaps if you learn how to spell people will take your opinions more seriously. By the way, it’s interesting that you can make that judgement when you haven’t even seen the actual car. Hundreds of people have seen it demonstrated live at technology conferences and other events.

    @ipodtouchapps96 I’m a little bit too old for that… You fail to understand that you are embarrassing yourself, your comments have no arguments and all you can do is insult others… And why would I go back to school? That literally makes no sense at all, its obvious that I’m better educated than you. Not only your grammar sucks, but you can’t form a sentence, either.
