There were several “concept” cars for display at the Tokyo Motor Show 2011. However, Mitsubishi’s opinion of how automobile interfaces may look like in the next 10 years was a little more interesting. Called the EMIRAI automotive interface, the car featured a curved, touch-screen rear projection display.
If you are thinking why not use LCD instead, then let’s just say a rear-projection has a few advantages, one of them being … “the display surface can be freely curved, for more effective design.” All the buttons are beautifully laid out. The interface also features a safety system that uses biometrics as well as Doppler sensors to measure facial temperatures and heart rate.
