Inspired by: A car is more than just a mode of transport to many people. Apart from being a functional physical object it mediates between us and our private existence. It brings us to friends and family, and the space inside the car embodies the recollections of such journeys. Inside the car, there is a sense of security, safety, privacy and personality. From the outside, it expresses freedom, independence and the human ability to move and explore. In today’s technological age products get smarter and often more complex and harder to understand. The design of information displays in cars seems to go against this technological development. As cars are getting smarter, the information communicated to us while we drive is not.
