This was a automobile touchscreen UI designed by Luckow in 2006. This project was a prototype for a product demo. This was at the cusp of touchscreen phones (the iPhone was first announced June 29, 2007), so appropriate thinking given the state of technology at the time.
Autonet Mobile’s router fits under a seat, in a glove box or in the trunk, comes with encryption technology and, because Autonet also is an Internet-service provider, you can surf the Web with the flip of a switch. The company says the service is reliable even in rural areas.
Autonet Mobile is the first Internet-based telematics and applications service designed for your vehicle.
