Tin Can Robot

A New Car UI

Here’s a concept design by Matthaeus Krenn about how to use a touchscreen in an automobile. To replace the tactile feedback you would normally get from knobs and switches, Krenn suggests changing the controls of the touchscreen based on finger gestures: two fingers controls volume; three fingers changes the audio source; four fingers control the temperature. There’s an additional set of controls when your fingers are spread wider. It looks to me like the design would work best with a large touchscreen (like on a Tesla).
