199. IdeaSpark*: Cellphone Car Starter March 7, 2007Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in IdeaSpark*, Product, Service.
After work today, I thought of this IdeaSpark* as I entered my freezing cold car. Wouldn’t it be great if you could speed dial a number on your cell phone to start your car from a remote location? Get your parked car to cool down, or warm up (depending on the weather), before you head to it.
There are remote car starters that already exist (like here), but the range is limited, and can they transmit through buildings and parking garages? Also, this device will call you back in 10 minutes to remind you that your car is still on, just in case you forgot.
