Joker Racer R/C Server adds internet-based control [Video]

Radio-controlled cars might not seem the most obvious place to mount a server, but JokerWorks disagree: the company has unveiled what they're calling the world's first Linux server for R/C cars, the Joker Racer R/C Server, easily allowing for remote internet-linked control.  To keep things simple, the Joker Racer unit hooks up to the standard servo cables already in the R/C car, together with an off-the-shelf webcam.
