Hey Adib,
Your menus are really coming along!
I especially like the layout of information.

...its weird though... while its very simple and straight forward (which is good) it still looks really busy to me, and i have to take a second look to tell what I'm looking at. But that doesn't make sense with how simplistic it is....
Maybe its all that red in the background. You might try killing that red and see if the menu items are easier to pick up.
Just an idea though, it really is lookin great!

Cheers,
- Bergquist

Ello Everyone,
I found a news story that I thought everyone in the challenge might be interested in!

Hover Car! Incredibly Awesome!

_________________
BEIJING, China, June 4, 2012 (ENS) – Volkswagen’s People’s Car Project launched last year has led to creation of a “Hover Car” that floats above the road using electromagnetic levitation.
The project allowed Internet users in China to post their ideas about cars of the future. From the more than 119,000 ideas submitted by 33 million visitors to the People’s Car Project website over the past 11 months, the German automaker selected three to develop and build as concept vehicles.

The “Hover Car,” the “Music Car” and the “Smart Key” were unveiled last month at the Beijing International Auto Show. The zero-emissions two-seater Hover Car looks like a shiny flying donut as it hovers just above the ground, moving forward or backward, left or right.

The Hover Car could in the future travel along electromagnetic road networks. The same method of propulsion is already used by maglev trains in China, Japan, Germany, California and elsewhere.

Does the vehicle have to be a traditional "car", or can we rethink that as well?

WIP - Multi-Mode Instrument Cluster

Hi everyone,

I finally found time to upload my latest WIP. It's been very motivating to see everyone's progress and ideas.

Doza3D WIP VisteonChallenge :



This is a preview of a multi-mode instrument cluster. The vehicle that utilizes this instrument cluster is tentatively called the "Urbano Car". The driver would be able to switch between bio fuel mode and full electric mode depending on the use of the vehicle or to provide flexibility to the driver.

This is currently a fully interactive application driven by keyboard events (E, B) and this instrument cluster will be paired with a matching IVI along a curved display.

One thought I had about the IC and IVI is to use an OLED projector to display the information from behind the dash. This would allow for curved surface displays.

Feedback is welcome!

Thanks adib!

I wish the compression was better for the video. The navigation map features some depth-of-field that places focus on the arrow and blurs out other areas. The lines are also much crisper than what is shown. Maybe I'll post a few screenshots as well.
