Works with gloves, I assume? Looks cool streamlined, but wondering how this will enhance driving excitement / safety / concentration. Basically, I'm hoping that they're not exchanging buttons and knobs (which are intuitive to push and adjust without looking once you learn them) for something like fabric iPhone interface which requires the driver's visual attention to interact. ie: you could text on a buttoned phone by feel and without looking once you learned the layout. You cannot do this by feel on an touchscreen surface. Likewise, I fear you may not be able to feel around for certain controls that are reduced to a touch sensitive surface.
