We already have compass, back-up mirrors, and now Nav integrated into the rear view mirror.

Soon iDrive, vehicle telemetry, a full function Windows XP computer, xBox, telephone, steering functions, DSC, 6 disc CD changer, home theater system, satellite TV with TiVO digital recorder...etc will ALL be integrated into the rear view mirror and the mirror will take up 75% of the windshield. :thumbup:

They better include an integrated Blue Tooth PS2 option so that I can play Gran Turismo 6 with the multi-function buttons on the steering wheel thru the HUD - while driving. It should also have a dedicated wireless/satellite network option so that I can race against other players - while driving.

:eek:

That will naturally be followed by the car without a windshield; instead there will be a full width display, with images necessary to driving being gathered by external sensors and displayed in various ways, such as thermal and radar-based images super-imposed on a bird's eye view. That way, you would look down on your car like an external view during a video game. Side screens would totally eliminate blinds spots too.

There are many advantages to this, the first of which is free the designer to be more creative with exterior shapes and not have to worry about too much glass. Also, without windows, the shell of the car will be stronger, aiding in crash tests.

Of course, by the time this system is ready, all driving will be totally computer controlled, with the I-drve being the ONLY control in the car. Actually, without the steering wheel, there'd be room for a keyobard and mouse, so maybe a better solution is along the way.

No, I'm not serious.

A system like that would bring a whole new frightening meaning to the phrase "blue screen of death"... :eek: :D
