Mercedes-Benz Unveils Futuristic Dashboard Controlled By Hand Gestures

Mercedes-Benz Unveils Futuristic Dashboard Controlled By Hand Gestures

German auto manufacturer of luxury cars has revealed its Dynamic & Intuitive Control Experience (DICE) at CES 2012. Mercedes DICE concept is a fully customizable dashboard with gesture-based controls that allows the driver to scroll, select and control a variety of functions with basic hand motions. The flat-panel dashboard also utilizes augmented reality feature where real-time information is digitally embedded on the windshield. With a wave of a hand, users can skip music tracks, message friends, and even make a reservation at a local restaurant.

Damon Lavrinc from Auto Blog tested DICE and claims that although it’s an innovative solution, “it’s not without its issues.” Lavrinc pointed out that the system the proximity sensors can’t yet distinguish between a gesture or if you just have your hand out. A Mercedes executive stated that we won’t be seeing gesture-based dashboard in Mercedes vehicles any time soon as a production version won’t be released for another 20 years.

Watch the video below to see Lavrinc testing out the Mercedes DICE system.
