[Matthias] sent in his team’s iPhone Robot (CAR) project in response to yesterday’s iPhone controlled solar charged tank. Unlike the tank, the iPhone car is controlled via Bluetooth BTnode and BTstack, and also isn’t solar-powered. However, both projects utilize iPhones and readily available components. We particularly liked how it not only used a multi-touch input, but also the accelerometer within the iPhone. It seems some competition is stirring, lets see who wins out.

I don’t see multitouch anywhere in the video
I’ve got an iPhone controlled robotic lawn mower that could take them both… Let the geek showdown begin.
This one is also quite impressive and it has lots of power:
Looks like a really uncomfortable way to control a vehicle.
wow that is so cool. I think you can probably improve the touch controllers like giving two buttons to go forward and backwards, so you can use the iphone with both hands to turn left n right. jst like the iphone car game uses.
the whole surface IS a forward/backward “slider”: the closer to the edge, the faster. and yes, it’s comfortable with two hands, but not good for recording a video.
Toys and technology are become interdependent on each other.It seems to be that from videos.
