Rethinking the in-car display
Ustwo–the studio behind the mobile game, Monument Valley, is rethinking how in-car displays (fuel gauge, speedometer, gear position, etc.) are designed. Currently, many digital readouts or displays resemble their analog counterparts–also known as skeuomorphic design. The screen arrangement used in the initial brainstorm was based on the Mercedes-Benz S Class screen which features a high-definition LCD screen. One primary goal is to incorporate more context into a typical readout including weather conditions, maximum speed limits based on location, and notifications from mobile devices.
