BMW scooter integrates your iPhone

BMW scooter integrates your iPhone
BMW will debut a new iPhone-friendly scooter at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.

The Mini Scooter E electric scooter will feature a snap-in adapter for the iPhone, which makes your phone the main display and control module.

When the iPhone is snapped into the scooter, it serves as the ignition key. The iPhone can then serve as a dash-GPS of sorts, and the stereo display if you are utilizing a Bluetooth-enabled helmet.

BMW also has an app to recognize the location of other Mini Scooter E units, and the app will automatically flash your headlamps at your future-scooter brethren.

Many electric concepts are awaiting an infrastructure of charging points. The Mini Scooter E instead uses a normal household outlet, and the scooter's slight form uses minimal electricity.
