iPhone App that Drivers your Car!

I remember seeing this in a James Bond Film years ago…  Where Pierce Brosnan was driving his BMW with his PDA.

This is probably is one of the coolest iPhone apps out there, the German-made ‘Spirit of Berlin’ driverless car app is well suited for secret agents.

Computer scientists recently developed the Spirit of Berlin smartphone app which gives user the ability to control a vehicle using an on-screen steering wheel, brake and accelerator. The projects director Professor Raúl Rojas envisions a future where taxis are piloted by unseen drivers.
