The iRemoco app is an ingenious idea for a remote controlled helicopter where the controller is an app. This project is currently on the Kickstarter crowdfunding platform and is more than half way towards its goal of becoming realized.
The iRemoco app is free to download in the iTunes app store and works on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices. A pledge of ninety nine big ones gets one a pre-ordered helicopter. Not a bad deal considering that you are also contributing to the realization of this project.
The iRemoco is an interesting initiative because of the possibilities that exist for all of our mobile devices and the control that we can have buried in our pockets. Check out iRemoco app Kickstarter page on how become a patron.
