Developer Jimmy Engström has managed to build an API to control a Silverlit (www.silverlit.com) remote control car. Using Bluetooth, the Windows Phone is able to control the toy just like any supported controller. It's pretty neat, but of course not really useful for the average consumer (unless you happen to have a Bluetooth controlled car stored away somewhere).
Engström is also looking to make the API available on Windows 8.1, perfect for tablets. We know there are many out there who enjoy messing around with remote controlled vehicles, and it's stories like this that really brings together hobbyists and developers on Windows platforms. Should you be looking for a Silverlit app or would like to lend a hand where possible, we recommend you get in touch with Engström.
