    IPhone-controlled Car to Demo at Geneva Motor Show

    Advertisement



    PCworld: It can send e-mails, play video, access the Web and snap pictures, but control a car? Swiss automobile design house Rinspeed will unveil a concept electric car controlled by an iPhone at next week's Geneva Motor Show.

    The iChange ditches car keys in favor of an iPhone, which clips into a holder on the dashboard to the right or left of the steering wheel. Once connected a green "start" button appears on the iPhone's display and one push brings the iChange automobile to life. When you're driving the car the iPhone can also be used for other control functions, such as switching on and off the headlights.

    I am sorry but they can keep it. Is bad enough that majority of the people in Miami can't drive to save their life; now your going to start selling a car that is controlled by an Iphone. States and cities are trying to get people from using there cell phone in a car, and now they are releasing a car that you can't use unless you use your cellphone...Funny

    Very nice, very nice feature. It will cell here in the us.

    W\ell at least it is better than the cars controlled by a M$ OS. A BSOD while you're driving down the road would be bad.

    In addition to the app they have to help find your parked car, there should be an app to help you find the keys to this car. Oh, but you do have a good point...what good will any of that be with a dead battery, ha ha!

    It sounds stupid and I cannot think of a usefull point of this invention.
    If some one steals my phone, he/she is gonna take my ride also.
    They have to focus on things that could work for all the iPhone owners, and something usefull too
