Soon we can all be Mr Bond ...

Interested to see that the concept of using a mobile phone as a remote control for a car (as demonstrated by Bond in The World is Not Enough!) is finally making an appearance as a real product - though only a car show prototype at this stage.

Not quite at the level where you can lie in the back seat and accelerate wildly up the ramp in the car park yet though. Current functions allow only:
  • "Control ambient lightning
  • Control front and rear seat settings
  • Lock the car
  • Open the rear compartment
  • Switch on and off the lights (blinkers, main lights…)"
Of course in the Bond film the phone was a Nokia Communicator so perhaps we need to wait for that version for those features ;->!
