A hacker from Japan has combined an iPhone with an Arduino CPU board and a motor, and has fueled his creation with 4 AA batteries to make an iPhone robot.

The iPhone robot is controlled using a remote computer over Wi-Fi with instructions to a special iPhone application installed on the jailbroken iPhone.

Implications - If a single tech-savvy hacker from Japan can manage to turn an iPhone into a robot, then it bodes well for businesses big and small who might be after unique ways to offer customers the opportunity to creatively reinvent the hugely popular piece of technology. By keeping their eyes peeled for possibilities, forward-thinking creatives show companies how brazen ingenuity can be the key to fantastic new finds.
