ShakerRacer, control your car like James Bond with the Nokia N95

I was fortunate to meet up with Andreas Jakl during the Fast Track event in Budapest. Andreas spends his days as an assistant professor and Symbian OS teacher at the University of Applied Sciences in Hagenberg, Austria where he and his collegues make all kind of crazy stuff such as modifiyng a regular RC-car by inserting a microcontroller and a Bluetooth-module to control the car using the Nokia N95´s accelerometer sensor, just like James Bond did in the Tomorrow Never Dies movie from 1997.

They also made this cool video demo:
