RC Web Cam
Remote Control Car with a Wireless Web Cam
Its one of those ideas that stuff already exists for but I haven't seen it.
Radio Controlled Car + Wireless Web Cam = Real Car Driving from your computer.
Simply add a wireless web cam to your existing remote control car and make the radio controller interface to a computer. Attach a steering
wheel and hey-presto you have a real car racing game.
Drive it in your back garden or yard, or on special tracks. Who knows. Connect to the internet and control cars the other side of the world on custom tracks.
Online and everything. [hidden truths, Oct 23 2005]

||But yeah, I agree - already done.
||Realtime would be difficult, even my $40/mo internet certainly wouldn't allow me to accurately pilot my T-Maxx
