    Presumably you steer with the joystick? Although that, I'm told, it works well for a pilot flying the Airbus (whichever model is is), I think it's been tried before with cars, with limited success.

    By the way, Rich, did you think of converting these to JPEGs?

    There's no steering wheel? One drives it like a video game with the stick? No Gas or brake pedals?

    Is this is non-functional prototype, or do I have to google it to find out how one drives it?

    Re: New Benz...CIRCULAR!

    There is no driver's seat, either person in the front can drive it. Meaning exporting to drive on left or drive on right is a lot cheaper than custom making them. But I am just guessing at that. Sounds neat though, huh? It also looks like you push forward on the stick to go forward as the transmission is controlled on the panel by buttons, just like the 70's Plymouths!


    Peter, I'm to darned lazy to convert them. That's why. Plus JPG is Lossy and I wanted to give you the best picture possible!

    Re: New Benz...CIRCULAR!

    Nice looking, but far from functional, I suspect.

    I'm not sure I like the redundant, left/right controls in the middle. Also, unless there is some sort of "saftey", I can see the possibilty of throwing the car in Park or Neutral when attempting to lower the windows. And if your kiddies fall/lean on the "stick", the car goes haywire. Much harder to lose control with a wheel, IMHO.
