What if you could control your car without actually touching it? That would be pretty cool, right? Cool and, well, impossible. Or, is it?

A group of guys from Russia sought to find out the answer to that question recently when they hacked just about every single component of an old Opel Vectra and rewired it so that they could control it with an iPad. And, while they were unsuccessful on their first attempt, they eventually got it going. They hope that, in time, they'll be able to hack the car even further so that they can control it over the Internet. But, they're still working out the kinks before they move forward with that.

Oh, and just in case you're wondering: Their hack will work on cars other than the Opel Vectra. The system that they created works with just about any car. So, who knows? One day you might be able to control your car with your iPad or, better yet, your smart phone.

Check out the video above to see the guys ghost ride their whip.
