    Girlfriend!

    what about a list of input devices you may want phidgets to be involved with.

    I mean everything from rotary jog dials to custom temperature input to make auto-A/C manual A/C eg by adjsuting the fan speeds and theat dial to keep the temperature at a different level to the usual 1 temperature of auto A/C systems and a nice display to set an exact temp.

    and these arent obvious?
    Windows
    doors
    sunroof
    trunk
    A/C

    i do like SFiorito's brake idea . But along those lines a lot of people have been talking about setting up SMS in their car, and giving their car a prepaid phone......so i guess any kinda kill switch to stop the car would be nice......even a starter kill controlled by the computer. A lot of cars wont allow poeple to install starter kills between the starter and the fuse box, because this will cause a check engine light error, so instead they put it between the ignition and the fuse box, making it easier for theives to find it... So starter kill.

    Yes all input devices will be covered

    so the idea is to have an interface with all the options to control in a car as buttons like window up down light on off so it more the outputs that will be the tricky part geting every output covered so people are happy with it
