Nike+ hacked to create automotive keyless entry device
Using an iPod dongle, a Nike+ shoe sensor, an Arduino Pro Mini (an open-source circuit board/software combo for electronic tinkerers), and far too many hours in the basement, he was able to create a key fob (or iFob, as Nate calls it) to unlock the doors on his Mazda3. Reading over his tutorial, the process isn't too complex, but it's not for the faint of heart, either. The only thing left for Nate to do is nix the ignition key entirely, so the next step is to install a push-button starter.
