Nike+iPod Hacked to make wireless car key

iFOB-11-MHacker Nathan Seidle at SparkFun Electronics has hacked his Nike+iPod pedometer to make a wireless car key.The reason I believe he gives is that he hates keys!  So  Nathan Seidle  rolled his own car-opener with a Nike+ dongle and receiver, an Arduino board, a Nike+iPod Serial to USB Adapter and some creative sabotage.

The only little problem he faced was that the range of the Nike+ was 50 feet so the trouble was the car locking and unlocking when in that range.To correct that he simply added tin foil wrappings which almost halved the frequency.

Read the entire Procedure.
