    Sorry about the bad pun, but there's an interesting short article detailing the modification of an iPhone to be the remote control of the DoD's new "crusher" vehicle.

    Apparently it's part of a drive to make defence robotics familiar with consumer input devices and interfaces.

    Skynet were as of yet unavailable for comment.

    Interesting.

    Wish they could say more about what controls/functions are delegated to the iPhone.

    Will it in future pause "attack/kill" mode when you get an incoming call?
