    I like that this design addresses tactile feedback as an issue but I still feel as though there is a place for regular, old knobs and buttons.

      It addresses bad tactile design, but maybe tactile is not meant for the car. At least not in the way it exists now. I find actual tactile car displays to be slow, badly designed, and unintuitive. If it's correctly designed, maybe the car would gain from it, allowing us to better watch the road.

      Agreed but I think its a good move for touch screens. It allows for less concentration and quick adjustments.

      Next is tackling knowing where controls are with out really looking.

        I think if this concept included sound cues as a substitute for tactile responses it'd be awesome. Perhaps a scale of notes, varying pitches, or light tones/chimes could help further differentiate + give confirmation between modes and micro-controls.

        Then you could control it with your hands, listen, and keep your eyes on the road.
