Windows 8 Applications Keep Perps Under Virtual Lock and Key (Video)
Required something to sate that Windows 8-lust Microsoft stirred up with its client Preview? Then take a gander at this in-development vehicle management app shown off at the company’s Redmond campus as a part of this year’s Worldwide Public Safety Symposium. Developed by Modularis, an outfit known for their enterprise, federal and OEM automation solutions, the Metro-style application turns its host slate into a virtual controller, granting users remote access to door locks, sirens, lights, also as the ability to pull cloud-based information — courtesy of Windows Azure — from multiple cars to determine GPS location. And, as you will see within the video when the break, it also has the unintended and wholly amusing advantage of freaking out innocent passers-by.
