Jiaxuan, together with his friend whom he grew up along with since his elementary days, rented a lab after finishing high school and started to make experiments including remote control for toys, air-conditioner, toy cars and others.

But Jiaxuan says he want to try something bigger and the two thought of converting the latest Nokia handset, Nokia C7, into a remote control to drive a car by itself, which they chose a luxurious BMW car.
