Now that is cool! Can you imagine going car shopping and the salesman being like, oh let me just warm up the car while we have a cup of coffee. What's next, an iphone app that can tap into the backup camera of a vehicle?

The Viper SmartStart from Directed Electronics is an iPhone-compatible remote starter capable of warming up or cooling down a car. Even if you’re not a fan of letting your car idle in a parking lot, Viper says the SmartStart could come in handy for remotely locking or unlocking the doors, popping the trunk or even sounding the car alarm.
