At the Chicago Auto Show roughly four years ago, Mercedes showed off a rather nifty looking car, focusing on the ordinarily boring topic of safety. (Yes, I realize safety is important, but I can’t get too too excited about airbags.) Not only did this car have transparent C-pillars, but it also had joystick control. Two joysticks were used in place of the steering wheel: one on the door, and one in place of the gear shift.
Don’t take my word for it. Check it out. It’s an interesting concept, but given how badly people drive with a wheel, I don’t think we can trust ‘em with two Suncom joysticks from 1994. -pm
