nice comments on the Lexus Remote Touch System

from the Passionate Pursuit:

>>Trying the Lexus Remote Touch System @ The Toronto Auto Show

After reporting stories and videos about the new Lexus Remote Touch system, I had the chance yesterday to try the technology for myself — and managed to record it despite my (noticeable) excitement:



We have a 2010 RX350 on the showroom floor now. The Remote Touch controller is much easier to use than the touch-screen navigation of the past. The controller has two electric motors attached to it that allow it to create resistance and “feel” to the inputs. The controller does return to center after the car is shut off.


The haptic feedback is strangely nice, it’s almost like there are notches, it’s hard to explain.
