Your iPhone isn’t just a communications tool – it can also be used, in this instance, to control a solar-powered Arduino tank remotely. This Arduino tank is the result of Chris Rojas’ work, where he used the iPhone TouchOSC app, a variety of parts from SparkFun including XBee modules and robot kits, and the Arduino open-source electronics prototyping platform. It would be nice to see more functionality added to such an invention so that you can then really scare the fur out of those pesky neighborhood cats.
