    Me and a friend were just discussing the apps that could be on the iPhone. But we just wondered can you use the screen (and an app) to create weighing scales? Obviously your not gonna put ote heavy on it. I think you can't because it would have to measure the pressure on the screen but he's adamant an app could do it.

    Also what about a remote control for a rc car?
    Use it as an xbox or playstation pad?

    What about a tennis multiplayer game used between 2 iPhones like a wii ??

    Could you modify the USB charger cable to fit a memory card reader that plugs into the bottom?

    These are just a few we thought of have you got any you would like to see? Or any uses you could think of the iPhone could replace.

    Sorry if this is in wrong topic.

    If you know the answers please let us all know!

    Thanks

    If this happened.....
    ....$10 says someone drops 100lb weight on it because they wanted to weigh it, destroys their ipod, and sues.

    What about multiplayer (Bluetooth or wifi) racing game, 4 player racing against eachother would be cool.

    LOL my mate just said a pregnancy tester, I said it's bad enough she's taking the test you end up being told your a dad AND your iPod is water damaged! LOL

    The iPod/iPhone dont read pressure on the screen, so the weight thing it completely out of the question.

    The game pad wouldnt work, there would be no way of connecting it to the console.

    The memory card thing for the dock connector has been though of before, many time. Its possible.

    Yeah, it reads the static electricity emanated from your body, not necessarily the pressure exerted from your finger.
