The future: less touchscreen, more voice

Post by matthew1 » Sun Mar 17, 2019 8:09 pm

I think touchscreens are just a stopgap between knobs and voice. Probably the future has a lot more HUD, too.

I've seen it mentioned here in MVS Forums more than once that touchscreens are the devil, and I agree. Too much messing about with your eyes off the road = dangerous, distracted driving.

Meanwhile voice both ways is getting very smart, with the flagship being Amazon's Alexa.
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.
