Hm I have this functionality for my phone on my in car radio for phone functions only, but because it uses bluetooth and its own interface on the car radio it isn't strictly a replication of the phone interface, so if I change phones the UI in the car won't change. That has it's good and bad points, so I'm not ready to commit to this idea on what they've presented alone. I see functions beyond selecting a contact from the phone contacts list to dial, and answering a call as the only "safe" functions while driving, and I'm not sure that's so complicated that you wouldn't deal with a different UI in the car anyway. Certainly has a cool factor though.

Now this is completely cool. However, I'm worried that this will be squashed by safety advocates, over-reacting to new technology in the car.

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
