More Dorkbot Austin goodness! John Boiles demonstrated this radio-controlled car steered using his iPod’s built-in accelerometer via its built-in WiFi transmitter. All you have to do is tilt the iPod, and the car goes. It starts to move around 1:10.

    Nice work John. Now you just need an onboard camera and a feedback to your iPod :)
