The BatBerry Project was started by Tim Neil, a Development Manager at RIM. Tim is on the group at RIM responsible for the delivery of the WebWorks platform and Ripple Emulator and the plan is to have the car’s auxiliary systems powered and controlled by a BlackBerry WebWorks application running on both the BlackBerry PlayBook and a BlackBerry smartphone.

It’s great to see the BatBerry project still going strong and it’s going to be really cool to see what kind of WebWorks app will power it. We imagine it might be something like the police car controlled by a PlayBook.
