Digital Dashboard

December 21, 2010

Ford has developed a new interface for drivers. Two LCD screens on either side of the speedometer can show a range of  information, selected using two game-pad-style thumb controllers on the steering wheel. The screens can display, for example, fuel level, distance traveled, engine temperature, or the presence of another car in the vehicle’s blind spot.
