Here's Why Gesture Controls in Your Car Are a Terrible IdeaGarrett Davis7/02/14 1:58pm9127EditPromoteShare to KinjaGo to permalinkWe live in an age of rapid technological innovation. Everything around us is changing at an incredible pace. The phone in your pocket went from a handy, if a bit dumb piece of technology to being the gateway to any interaction or piece of information with anyone or anything on earth, within about a decade... and it's cheap! For as much as we like to complain about it sometimes (like OMG all the time), we can all pretty much agree that this tech revolution is awesome and is just getting better.AdvertisementWell, most of the time.There are instances where we are stuffing new technology into every little aspect of our lives, whether it's an improvement or not.

BMW, Hyundai, Audi, Ford, and Mercedes-Benz are all working on their own version of gesture controls for navigating around the increasingly complex world that is your automobile.
