Over the years we have featured a number of remote controlled vehicles that can be steered by your iPhone. But now a device has been launched that enables you to connect pretty much any remote controlled vehicle to your iPhone using a connection kit and custom iOS application.
The new WiRC connection kit has been created and developed by Dension, and enables you to control your model car, truck, boat etc. directly from your iPhone. The unique connection kit controls standard model servos and ESCs so you can use it for almost any application. Watch the video after the jump to see it in action.
The complimenting iPhone application, is now available for free from the App Store, and lets you drive with on-screen joysticks or by tilting your iPhone. While viewing a real-time video feed streaming directly from the vehicle, as you drive.
WiRC enables you to quickly access 8+4 channels of output, adjust the sensitivity and trimming, just like on a professional transmitter, and you can even stream footage from 2 digital USB cameras.
Dension is also working on apps and systems for other mobile operating systems, and already has a proof of concept version of Android client application which is still being developed.
