Steer a Ferrari Enzo Remote Control Car With Your Cell Phone Part of the magic of CES is seeing a bunch of wacky stuff ,as well as the more important products and technologies. Case in point: a remote control car that uses a Motorola cell phone as the remote. Now you can deplete your cell phone batttery and crash a Ferrari, all from the comfort of your couch. Uh…that’s progress, right?
It’s actually a collaboration between Motorola, Nikko and Freescale and is based on the Freescale Semiconductor wireless Personal Area Network (PAN) technology, which uses the IEEE(R) 802.15.4 standard. The phone does simulate the car’s movement, however, and vibrates when you start it up and turn the wheel. And the Push-To-Talk (PTT) button serves as a “turbo boost” for a sudden burst of speed. Wheeeeeeeeeee! The car is compatible with the Motorola iDen i265, i275, i560, i730, i760, i830, i850, i860, and i870 phones and runs on 4 AA batteries. Source: Gizmodo
