Matthaeus Krenn, a talented product designer from San Francisco who has come up with his own concept for a car user interface. Matthaeus turned his idea into a video, in which he presents what truly intuitive car interface should be. In his eyes, icons are dated and obsolete. Therefore, he has replaced them with finger gestures to take advantage of the touch screen technology. Depending on the number of fingers that touch the display, different functions are activated.
For instance, if you touch the screen with two fingers, you can control the volume, and when you add one more, you can change the music source. Swiping on the screen is more intuitive than staring at the small display in order to find a small button reponsible for heating. Additionally, it allows for eyes-free control so drivers could focus more on the road.
