Linux-based controller remotely pilots a Bond Car

A Russian firm has produced a Linux-based WiFi controller board for remote control and video observation, and has demonstrated its use in a remote controlled car.

Two-year-old Virt2real Ltd is still something of an after-hours project run by several Russian techies, but has become well known in the Russian hacker community, according to co-founder Eugene Pomazov. Its principle international recognition came from a video it released back in March. Several sites, including Wired and Gizmodo, picked up on Russian media coverage of the company’s video demo of a remote controlled “Bond Car.”
