Rob Wray, from mp3Car, shows us the Visteon C-Beyond car. The center console has a thermal IR sensor that detects your hand location and opens and closes the console compartment automatically according to hand movement. Adjustable ambient lighting can be changed based on the passenger's mood. Motion sensing lighting can aid passengers in finding lost items at night as the floor can illuminate based on hand gestures. "Vertical Air Flow" eliminates the need for conventional HVAC vents on the dash. Individual zones of the vehicle are more easily climate controlled based around circular ceiling and floor modules. A Windows PC and Centrafuse front end controls all of the technology.

me 'n my funky wording.. i understood it fine
Maybe I misunderstood you. I thought you were saying an iPad install is less feature limited than a factory OEM install.
my audio setup for one..

the look of the setup can also be different. because i have a carpc, i want a image of my car as the background. from the video, little things like this don't appear to be a option.. and honestly, the full integration doesn't appeal to me.. what happens when you forget the ipad at home, or in the unlikely event that apple changes the OS, or connections to the extent that they no longer work with the car?

when my carpc doesn't work, i have a 3.5mm jack to play something in the time it takes to repair the pc..

at this level of integration, i start to question why you even want a ipad in there in the first place.. your stuck with the factory interface, same as a OEM deck, and you only get a little extra media storage..
