Now I am not 100% sure if this is an April Fools Joke or not but I will take the risk!!

Some guys at ‘geekmyride’ (worth the post alone!) have managed to integrate an iPhod Touch with a Mazda RX-8 by using Wi-Fi. The custom application can be used to lock and unlock the doors, start and stop the engine, and finally open the truck. It also has a data window providing information on fuel level, battery voltage, RPM, speed, and temperatures. It’s even got a GPS so you can track the car’s wherabouts with Google Maps. And its all been done with a computer hidden in the trunk, hooked up to the on-board diagnostics, and equipped with a 3G modem to stay constantly connected to the iPhone.

Don’t believe me? Check the video after the break.
