Start Your Engines.. With Your Phone

Nissan, Sharp Corporation and Japanese mobile communications company NTT DOCOMO, have co-developed the first car controls as a possible cellphone feature.

The innovative phone makes use of Nissan Intelligent Key System. Currently, the project is still work in progress and as a result, the phone can only lock and unlock the car and start and stop the engine.

The phone won't go on sale commercially until 2009, but will be demoed at the CEATEC exhibition in Japan later this month.
