Hack: Control an R/C Car With Your iPhone

 |  |  |  |  |  |  September 8, 2008

A couple of young Czech whippersnappers have figured out how to use the iPhone’s accelerometer to control remote controlled cars.

They say, “Controlling is very easy with the iPhone 3G. It has five buttons, four of them you can use for traditional driving and when you press the last one, it unlocks the accelerometer control in the same way as in many driving games available on AppStore.” Check out the video here.

It took them just one afternoon to conjure this up. You can get the full how-to and read more at their website. Nice work, boys, very nice indeed!
