Swiss prototype car built round iPhone

Swiss design firm Rinspeed will be showing a prototype of a new vehicle, iChange, at the Geneva motor show which opens on Thursday. It is built around Apple's iPhone, which plugs into the dashboard and acts as the car's key - locking and unlocking it, as well as turning on the engine and performing other vital functions, The Guardian says.

The electric-powered model can change shape to accommodate one, two or three passengers. Development of iChange has been supported by the Swiss government.
