Your Car Window May Soon Play Angry Birds

THE BUZZ: In this video, GM’s Research and Development department shows off their Windows of Opportunity project—a new technology for creating interactive elements on car windows.

EGM’s TAKE: So, before we get into the games aspect of this technology, I think there’s certainly some interesting possibilities that could come out of this. Think about a front windshield on your car that could display GPS route information directly onto the glass—thus reducing the dangers of the need to look away from driving and at a small LCD screen.

As far as entertainment possibilities, I see ideas like these from two sides. For one, being able to play video games or watch videos directly on a passenger window could be a great option for those long car trips. Who needs a handheld device when the entire window next to you could be an interactive window into the digital world?

On the other hand—do we really need more possible points of distraction when controlling multi-ton iron monstrosities of death and destruction?
