AUTHOR: Inavate

Mercedes has implemented rear-projection and multi-touch technology into the dashboard of its prototype F800.

The model was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show and technology review site, CNET has got some amazing pictures of the vehicle.

A multi-touch mouse trackpad uses infrared cameras to let you control the sat-nav., reported CNET.

The report continued to explain that the dashboard rear-projection display bounces images off a mirror and up on to the screen on the instrument binnacle. It's capable of showing gauges for speed, remaining fuel and engine temperature, as well as navigation instructions and vehicle settings.
