In the grail-like quest for the ultimate all-in-one device, all gadgets are possible targets for any manner of technological combinations--no matter how grotesquely unnatural. And it turns out that even the lowly car-key remote isn't out of bounds.

And with a 900MHz frequency, we wonder why they didn't go all the way and turn this into a phone as well.
