    I feel like the gestures will be confusing for normal drivers. It's an interesting concept but users will be frustrated by incorrect actions by using the wrong gesture.

      From the top of my head, I don't remember sitting in a car ever where I was not initially confused by the controls on the center console. No batter whether touch screen, buttons, or hybrid system. I guess you could say that the barrier of entry is pretty low ;) Ultimately it's all about using the right combination of controls and UIs together. My concept is just another option.

        Yeah totally agree but tactile knobs are more affordable to touch and experiment with then a blank screen. Both options are learned interfaces, I feel this is where voice controls will win out at the end of the day. This is a very innovative interface that myself as a designer would appreciate and enjoy but I feel like a lot of people will be lost. Especially with the introduction of more gestures/options. Regardless great experimentation, its good to see someone rethinking this mess.
