Another mobile phone controlled car
I've ordered myself a Sony Ericsson Bluetooth Car-100, but thought that Nokia users would like to know they're not left behind. I've found that UK-based Firebox sells a remote controlled mini car. A mini transmitter is connected into the hands-free socket on a Nokia mobile phone. The keypad tones are sent to the car as the commands.

The 2,4,6 and 8 keys control left/right/forward/backward movements whilst pressing the 7 key throws the car into a nifty figure of eight. Hitting 0 brings the car to an abrupt stop. As you can see, Mobile Phone Racer is no slouch in the manoeuvrability department - you can even program up to 16 of your own pre-set motions into the memory.

While the Sony Ericsson Bluetooth Car-100 has a 10 metres range, this gadget has a 3 metres limit.
