    Xperia Phones Used to Drive Automated Cars on Real Life Reckless Racing Track


    Xperia Phones Used to Drive Automated Cars on Real Life Reckless Racing Track

    We talked plenty about Sonyís Xperia line of phones over the past couple months, the Xperia P and U, Xperia S, Xperia Ion, Xperia Play2 and the Hayabusa(?). Now, itís time to see what the Xperia name can really doÖ on the racetrack. The Reckless Racing 2 racetrack. In real life even!
    The crazy people behind the Xperia Studio have taken a couple of MGF cars and completely automated them to be driven entirely by the physical buttons of the Xperia Play and the touchscreen of the Xperia S. I donít suspect this is anything that you think about when shopping for a smart phone, let alone will attempt to do, but itís pretty bad-ass nonetheless. What you are about to see is a couple of grown men playing with some seriously cool toys. Check out the video below and let us know what you think.

    Psssh, James Bond has been doing this for about a decade with his Nokia =p

    This is pretty cool, though, and I would imagine that with a newer car that uses fully-integrated electronic shifting that you could setup a system like this that piggy-backs on the built-in cpu. Not sure what the practical applications would be, but I'm sure there are a few.
    What is best in life? "To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women."
