Wi-Drive is an iPhone controlled car with virtual reality goggles to give the user a driver seat view of the car.

UK student Gavin Williams has developed an iPhone controlled toy car as part of a university project. Called the Wi-Drive, the car can be controlled over any WiFi connection and has a camera mounted under the shell to transmit audio and video to a pair of virtual reality glasses worn by the user which gives them a driver’s seat view of the car. The commands are issued via an on-board Arduino chip programmed to process commands from the iPhone.

Here’s a video of the Wi-Drive in play:
