Mazda RX-8

Australian Jon Oxer used a Linux-based Alix 1 computer and an iPod Touch to remotely control his Mazda RX-8. Oxer can’t move the car with his iPod, but he can use the handheld device to unlock the doors and the trunk, start the car, link to a real-time GPS feed, and receive system status updates about the car’s gas level, engine rpm, and temperature. Because the car has its own 3G connection, Jon can use the iPod Touch to activate the car from anywhere in the world. Check out the wiki at GeekMyRide for more information about Oxer’s car and other cool projects.
