Inverted Vantage's WIP

Just started this recently, though I've been thinking about it for awhile. The design relies on the user controlling the car mostly through gestures, with a HUD displayed using transparent OLEDs on the windshield, and a keypad for alphanumeric entry.

I have chosen this design path to minimize the time that the driver spends looking down/away from the road - the entire control mechanism of the car should be up in front of them, to maximize safety and control. The use of a physical keypad instead of a touchscreen enhances safety - users can feel the physical keys, and thus with practice do not have to look down and away from the road to type; unlike with touchscreens, where the lack of tactile feedback precludes one's ability to instinctively sense which keys they are pressing.

Still a WIP and I have to do the interface - so little time, so much to do! Thanks Visteon/CGSociety for the cool contest!

To make the interior, I decided that I had to make the exterior, or at least some rough mockup of it. I'm really trying to power through this, fingers crossed I can get it done on time. Next up is more of the interior. All next week: the interface.

I know this doesn't show much, but it's more to keep me on track. Interface mockup. I hope I can finish all this in time >.<

Just did 90% of the HUD. Now for animations, then some material changes, then rendering!

The HUD is shown with all windows open.

Thanks guys. Really doubtful I'm going to get the video done in time, but here's the boot-up sequence;
