Turn a cable-controlled car into a smartphone-controlled car
Browsing Elektor Labs from old to new I came across an interesting project from 2013 to transform a remote controlled cable car into a Wi-Fi controlled car. At the time Wi-Fi modules (and martphones) were still new, expensive and a bit complicated to use, but today, thanks to the ESP8266 adding Wi-Fi to any device has become cheap and easy. So, why don’t you let this project inspire you? Find an old (or new) cable car and turn it into a cheap, Wi-Fi-controlled car.
