Eyes-Free Personal Assistant Delivers Feedback Through A Steering Wheel
This personal assistant could transform the automotive industry.
Personal assistants are on the up. Just this month we wrote about ‘Miranda,’ a personalized alarm clock created by Berlin-based tech company Capsule.fm that wakes you with information similar to the features put forth in the film Her. Now the trend is moving into the automotive industry with ‘Jeane,’ a smartphone-operated software that integrates with the driving experience.
Jeane is a force-feedback steering wheel cover that vibrates to help the driver navigate. It has the ability to tell you how to get to your destination while preventing traffic jams by synchronizing with other Jeane users, providing useful information such as when the other drivers are slowing down or speeding up.
