Please don't touch

When I drive I want to control my radio, aircon, etc. without looking. I do not like touchscreens. What is the added value of such an interface? I hope ergonomics are more important than eye candy.

I do like the HUD. My almost ten year old BMW has a HUD that shows speed, navigation and warning messages. Until I had a HUD I never knew what I was missing. It helps to focus on the road.

So adding HUD and touchscreens seems a bit opposite.

Determining depth of water ahead

NO RATINGS
Sonar would be an obvious means to determine depth of the water ahead regardless of the water opacity. Once the front end touches water, an underwater sonor depth finder could detect and display the water depth ahead.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
