    I see your 7" touchscreen and raise you...

    A 17" touch screen AIO dash (found on the upcoming Tesla cars):


    I've seen pictures of this thing before, but never a video. I guess it seems kinda cool, but I think it's overkill. Anyone who's seen a laptop in a car at night knows how bright and distracting a giant screen can be, night mode or not. Also from an interface point of view, I can tell I'd be pretty annoyed at setting climate control and stuff through the screen -- I really feel that there are some controls that should remain tactile. That being said, I'm stoked to see what future app devs do with 17" of screen real estate.

    was it turbocad that installed a widescreen laptop monitor in his car-- looking nearly identical to tesla's design? and did it years ago!?!?

    i completely agree-- while i like my touch screen, i do get tired of looking at it all the time to make sure that my finger actually lines up with the button i want to press.

    honestly, i think that much screen space is overkill. it gives a nice clean look with the car off, but that is it-- there is just so much going on in one physical screen, i imagine that older buyers are going to be a little overwhelmed by the controls.

    Love the car, but that screen definitely looks out of place and they could of done the same with less.
