But the Vinli is about much more than just Wi-Fi. It's also a platform for software developers to make independent apps that use your newly enhanced car to do some incredible things. Already, there are apps (most connected with a smart-phone) that set up geo-fences, monitor speed, find empty parking spots, and send you email alerts about any potential engine problems that may lie undetected.
"The moment a person plugs their Vinli into their car, an instant link between the car and the world is created," said Haidar.
Advanced orders of the Vinli will ship in August, with everyone else having to wait until September. It retails at a very reasonable $99, with varying data plans available through T-Mobile.
