I was really impressed by the dashboard demo TI gave me, which was capable of turning almost the entire console into a touchscreen. The coolest part is that surfaces do not have to be flat. Car manufacturers can use the DLP to wrap an image aroung all the nooks and crannies of a typical dashboard without any of the icons, images, buttons, sliders or other control surfaces appearing warped. For large scale displays on any surface--even wall sized--the DLP touchscreen has got to be a very cost effective solution too.
