The future of driving–gesture control?

AUTOS, VIDEO

One of the coolest things I saw at the Detroit Auto show this year was the Hyundai (like sundae) HCD-14 Genesis Concept. While it’s gigantic swooping body lines, and gaping grill made for an interesting exterior, it was the technology inside that made me sit up and take notice.

Outfitted with gesture control sensors (much like your video game console at home), to control things like volume and temperature while retina scanning technology tracks eye movement to let you select tracks or radio stations, the interior dash is surprisingly button-free.

Could this be the future of distraction-free driving?
