>> Auto makers just keep getting better and better at interfaces, perhaps none more so than this prototype from Mercedes called My Command. Now we already love their latest generation of command interface, but check this out. All internet based. Look at the categories here. Your media, yeah you can rip music to the hard drive of the system, but you can also stream internet radio, You Tube video. Again, it's all IP. Go to the web, well that's obvious. You've got web access to any of the resources out there, from Google Search to restaurant reservations, to hookups for events. If you go over here to communications, your phone is voice over IP. Again, everything internet. If you head over here to your navigation of course, who do you think? Google Maps, including street view. So you can actually see what where you're going looks like before you get there. Can you get your head around this? Now it's all a prototype right now, but notice how it's running on standard Mercedes hardware in this demonstration. Nothing too space age here. Now again, this is all an engineering demonstration, not slated for production yet. But Mercedes says they'll be watching the emergence of 4G networks in particular, LTE, Wymax, those guys for ubiquity, and then this is ready to take center stage they say.
