Million Dollar Idea: 1:1 Scale R/C

Discovered while recording TGP with Robert Fuge the other night.

If modern cars have electronic throttle, steering, and brakes, shouldn’t somebody offer a black box that plugs into the CAN bus port allowing remote vehicle control with a modern, 4-channel Airtronics or Futaba radio?

$2,000,000 idea if it’s scalable to a web connected app. James Bond style.

EDIT: Interestingly, I wrote this in Google Docs. The next day, Google suggested I read an article about a guy who built his own, full-scale R/C Honda Civic. #theylive
