Designit designed and built a Technology Demonstrator (prototype) forHarman Becker
to show the future of in-car interaction, and to aid the process by demonstrating new opportunities within ergonomics, in-car interaction and how interface devices can be integrated.
“We are certain that we will see an integration of technologies in the future, for instance gesture control combined with big touch screens. That would open up new opportunities in the design of dashboards and operating control areas. These technologies are available today the tough question is how to apply them in the right way. In the automotive industry there is no point in looking for a final solution because technological advances are so swift but the demonstrator enable people to experience what is currently the most fascinating options,” says Markus Mayer, director of product design at Designit Munich.
The final prototype of the Demonstrator was shown for the first time at The Frankfurt Motor Show in the fall and will tour motor shows all over the world as well as visit offices of Harman Becker’s clients.
