Mitsubishi Electric Corp has developed something that I thought would only exist in Gundams – semispherical rear-projection display on cars. Basically as I understand it, the technology is similar to what rear-projection TVs are using with a touch sensitive semisphere that can track your hand movement as well as hand writing.
The thing is, based on the concept, it looks as though this technology is geared towards the driver instead of both driver and front passenger. I mean the technology is cool and all but I would rather concentrate on driving the car than fiddling with the semisphere, specially for manual drivers but then again by the time this is ready for mass production manual transmission might be a thing of the past so its actually not a problem. Nevertheless I would much prefer it being on the centre console so the front passenger have access to it as well.
And oh yeah I hate that steering wheel. We are not flying jets here. Unless this concept can also fly.
