why do people like this shit? What the fuck
> The screen generates the feel of rough, smooth, and patterned surfaces to indicate different buttons and functions; to make a selection, a button needs to be pressed more firmly.
How about using real fucking buttons you decadent cunts.
I'm not an anti-intellectual but I agree.
People today spend most of their lives staring at screens, at work and at home and in between. Why not make the drive stand out as part of your day, rather than making your car just another computer desk to lounge in? Soon my car will be linked with social media and have a robot nanny blabbing at me the whole time. I just want to enjoy my car, the road, and any passengers I happen to have with me.
>tfw we are the new boomers
Our kids are going to own electric cars with autopilot and no actual windows, only cameras and screens everywhere. They're going to look at us strangely for holding onto the combustion engine powered vehicles of our youth with real buttons, steering wheels, and stick shifts and we'll post them on Craigslist saying "they don't make 'em like this anymore, no lowballers, I know what I've got"
You know what that "forward" of yours means? Pic related. And everything else banned (including any human inputs). You're a fucking retard if you think new=good and I hope you don't procreate.
reminds me of this from 2004
looks interesting though
I kind of like Retrofuturism.
Imagine playing synth music and driving under the street lights sitting in this.

Born 1989 and I can't wait for self driving cars. Love driving but it's pretty shit when the max you can go is 30 mph tops within city limits due to traffic. And every step closer we get to getting those fucking shithead distracted drivers off the road, the better.
As someone born in '82 with the mindset of a backwards hick I cant wait for the days of self driving cars full of electronic bullcrap - when I can crush through the floor of a modern car dealer with an old freight elevator down from the darkness of the sewer and start the Eninge of my no-electronics, gas powered, gas guzzling, carburetor sucking monster like in the bullcrap movie that Demolition Man was.
Exactly the reason why I love older cars - I mean, sure, I'd love to have electrical and heated massaging seats that fondle my balls while a bong comes out of my steering wheel (automatically cleaned and ready to smoke, obviously) and the car, according to what mood I'm in, chooses something from my music to listen to.
Okay, I'm high as shit and forgot what I was going to write.
Self-driving cars make massively less mistakes than human drivers - you give them a set of rules and they follow them, without interpreting.
Not like all those other cunts on the roads. Texting, drinking, smoking, eating, fucking and taking care of their kids while driving a car - yeah, I'm actually for getting them a car that drives itself and can't be operated by them.
Just as long as that means though that driving yourself isn't banned, obviously. Because then it's just fucking stupid.
We have an issue where the current state of natural selection is what is actually weeding out the folks who are interested in driving shitboxes because they get totalled by people who drive fat SUV's who stare at phones.
So the faster these automated cars arrive the more fuckheads you get away from the controls means the more a regular intelligent being would survive.
>woa there goy
>had a bit too much to think have we
>your google account on the phone which you registered your self driving car on has detected anti israel searches and posts on various websites
>well just turn those brakes off for a little while
I feel like the big difference is that the digi-dashes of old were LOOKING TO THE FUTURE, TECHNOLOGICAL, ELECTRONICAL, etc, but all the info is still about the CAR- even if you've got a rad horizontal tach with different colored lights for the redline and 8-segment displays for the speedo, and more little blinky lights and switches than you can shake a wiring harness at, it's all still information relevant to the car and its operation. Your radio was even still a separate unit in all its AM/FM and tape deck glory with all the little knobs for equalizers.
The whole reason we have fucking screens everywhere NOW is because of all the shit that has NOTHING to do with the actual operation of the car- all the garbage that gets stuck in the infotainment center along with the things you actually want, like radio and HVAC controls.
And then they started putting screens between the dials, too, you know, in case you're a fucking retard and need to see it's been 2156.783 miles since your last oil change every time you check your speed, or that it's precisely ten degrees warmer than my left fucking testicle outside as you're doing 80 on the freeway.
Also, of course, the whole difference in aesthetic- big blocky plastic housings and nylon covers with square, individual idiot lights and primarily Indiglo green numerals (the same color every car has used for the past jillion years) with yellows, oranges, and reds for warning lights. Things that didn't need to be lit up weren't, and every spot did ONE thing- it didn't show you the current radio station until you drag your finger sideways, where it shows you the Sport mode suspension option, and then if you tap it twice it plays a cute animation of a kitty cat for your passenger.
Every modern touch screen Carbook Faceplace bullshit looks dated within a year. No one has ever said, boy, I sure do love how the touch screen interface of this 2011 Camry looks, yet you'll still find people (read: /o/ and other autist groups) who like simple, mechanical interfaces with dedicated readouts and buttons and switches. The only people who have said they love a new touchy interface are the type who immediately forget about it and hate it when the NEXT version comes out with slightly more rounded window corners and 15% brighter blue tint on the gas gauge/cell phone info center.
Basically: old school digidashes look dated, but in a specifically iconic way- they harken to a different era, the gap between old and new, before things got rounded and touchy-feely and silly.
New infotainment centers end up looking dated- and nothing more, like all the early-2000's attempts at MP3 player interfaces.
Honestly, I didn't like the in dash ipad thing a lot of the newer cars had until recently. The 2015 mustang with the electronics pack for example. Didn't see a need for it and it detracted from the look of the interior.
However, after owning one for a number of months now, it's very convenient to have everything centralized in the thing. Having screens all over the interior though I imagine would annoy this shit out of me. One screen is enough. No more. GPS, Music, and that's about it.
And since ford has thousands of employees shilling this board, takes notes. PUT A FUCKING TUNER IN THE CAR FROM FACTORY, AND ALLOW ME TO TUNE IF FROM THE IN DASH IPAD. WHY HAS NOBODY DONE THIS
>ALLOW ME TO TUNE IF FROM THE IN DASH IPAD
Why? We know what's good for you and good for the car, just let us take care of that.
Wouldn't want to void the warranty on your shiny new Ford, would you?
My problem with self-driving cars isn't how well they follow the rules, it's how well they can sense things. I'd like to see them operate at highway speeds surrounded by idiots in the rain like the rest of us have to do every day, not just putting around suburban streets at 30mph in the sun.
>warning message pops up upon opening the tuner
>"Any changes or modifications will void warranty"
>As soon as something is changed it is sent to ford
Easy. Done. If you don't want to void the warranty, don't change it. If you don't give a shit, you now have easy access to a tuner.
>And everything else banned (including any human inputs
Yet you still have the gall to call others retards.
it kicked ass!!!!
it was so sick this dude was like the terminator, but only more humane. also the future sucks
