iPhone is normally used to make calls, or at most to play. But we alway see different experiments with the iPhone involved in driving a vehicle or integrated into a robot. Today we show you how the iPhone is able to command a small rocket through an application and some special hardware!
Here is video demonstration of eMissileBox, an iPhone application to control missile launches which was developed for an ECE 4180 project at Georgia Tech in Fall 2009:
This Missile Launcher is based on an eBox running customized Windows CE 6, it launches model rockets to 200 feet. Everything is iPhone controlled (orientation, deviation and firing).
Wind Os is a simple application that brings the feeling of using Windows on the iPhone. There is a bottom bar and user can open the Start menu and access minesweeper game and the notepad. The applications are fully functional, but there is always a possibility of some errors in the system:
This application has no real value and is therefore directed more to jokes. Just make friends think that you have installed a lightweight version of Windows on the iPhone. Wow!
Wind Os is avaliable in AppStore for $0.99 (
Media research firm Nielsen released its lists of top U.S. mobile phones, sites, and brands for the first ten months of 2009.

Yesterday Tristan Nitot, the European president of the Mozilla Foundation, has responded to some questions about the future opportunity to see Firefox on the iPhone and iPod Touch:
"The issue is more with Apple than with us because they control the App Store and because they refuse applications which compete with something that is already on the phone. It’s unlikely that we’ll see a version of Firefox running on the iPhone"
As for Firefox Mobile, it will be launching on Symbian, Android, Windows Mobile, and Nokia Maemo tablets in December.
Here's a new video preview of Sn0wbreeze, the iH8sn0w's Windows tool that will be able to create a custom firmware, just as PwnageTool Mac.
In the video we see a preview of the graphic interface and the first functions. At startup we choose the expert or the simple mode and the rest should be exactly as we know it already.
Many users are unable to sync their iPhones on PCs equipped with Windows 7 and Intel P55 Express chipset. Gigabyte is the first company who fixed this issue. They've released a beta BIOS that addresses the problem. Asus and MSI, which also use the P55 express on their motherboards, haven’t issued any updates yet, but hopefully will soon.
Geohot has released his BlackSn0w utility. BlackSn0w is an unlock for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS. It supports the latest firmware 3.1 and 3.1.2 with baseband 05.11.07 and enables official tethering. Available for both Windows and Mac.
Here is a quick tutorial:
If you havn't done the jailbreak: go to
If your device is already jailbroken - run Cydia, add repository blackra1n.com and install blacksn0w. That's it!
The latest version of blackra1n is RC3. It now has hacktivation support, 15 second speed improvement, Tiger+PPC support.
PS: If you just bought a new iPhone 3GS or have one that was made recently (approximately after 40th week after iPhone 3GS release): your device has a new BootROM. Unfortunately it is impossible to run regular jailbreak with this new BootROM. There is a sloution - tethered jailbreak. Everything including unlock will work fine. However every time you restart your iPhone, you need to plug it to a computer with blackra1n installed.
