Submission + - TOY FAIR 2012: new Linux system for RC cars (

An anonymous reader writes: Last weekend during the Nuremberg Toy Fair 2012 I spotted a really cool new system for "professional" RC models based on Embedded Linux.

The WiRC allows to control an RC car (or any other RC vehicle) with an iOS/Android device using WiFi.
The core of this system is a 240 MHz ARM9 processor, with 16 MB SDRAM and 4 MB FLASH (with 2 USB ports and 802.11b/g WiFi, a microphone input and a Speaker output). It features 8+4 channels of output.

A free software SDK is now in development to code your own transmitter applications.
