Apple iCar?

I just watched a youtube video about QNX's vision about the future:



This video reminds me of an article I read in the past about the possibility of Tim Cook bringing the Apple iCar.... It would be nice if Apple also control the technology that most cars use, the ecosystem will get even better for iOS users!

Apple is an electronic company– not an automobile company.

Cool concept though

Pointing out stop signs is cool, but the dashboard idea is horrible. There are already too many things distracting people from actually paying attention to the road. Distracted driving from cellphones is just as bad as driving drunk, and the dashboard idea only seems to expand on that. It's flashy, not practical. Not good in my opinion.

I think the future of car dashboards should be extremely minimal, if not eliminating the dashboard entirely.
