Concept Car Dashboard

Hyundais European Design Center commissioned MESO with an interactive and operational dash board system. The so called „i-Flow“ was introduced to the public during the Geneva Car Show 2010.

The i-Flow  drives the development of the new corporate form language, fluidic sculpture.The graphic and interaction is very playful; a moving grid of baselines is the only layout framework, all of the onscreen elements just float in space, and can be docked in the bottom display if necessary. The grid distorts in real time in response to the user’s interactions, always accomodating a dynamic rearrangement of all elements. As in the interior, there are no rectangular lines in the display. Everything flows. Driver and co-pilot interact with this very smart car via a “touchless” vision-based multitouch technology or via a clickwheel in the console. For the presenters showcasing the car, there is also a convenient remote control via a mobile phone.

Technologically, the dashboard is essentially a sculpted, superwide multitouch screen with a stunning resolution: The three interlinked screen areas are realized by use of no less than six miniature video projectors that boast a total screen width of 4800 pixels – about four times that of a regular desktop monitor. This yields a very decent resolution of about 100 dpi – as good as a laptop. The main display alone is over 800mm wide. The whole system runs from a single computer (neatly tucked in the boot).
