Flickr user Simple Simon has posted images of a mobile phone/radio-control car mashup he made (via the Make: Blog). We did something very similar on The Big Bang a couple of years ago, using an ex-demo Panasonic clamshell blagged from the local Orange shop, a miniature capacitor-powered RC car, and a Dremel. Sorry about the blurry photos, they’re all I happen to have – and while I did have the thing in my hand a couple of weeks ago, I’m stuffed if I can find it now. I do have the rubber duck version Jack made, though sadly not the lightweight potted plant. For the record: in my opinion, the pot plant was the funniest.

I’ll see if I can get the things running again, and we’ll make some videos of them for SciCast.
