Audi MMI Touch V2.0

Okay, it’s not officially called “V2.0”; we’re just using it to differentiate it from the first-generation system found in the Audi A8. This new system (which is expected to debut on the next-generation A3) features an enlarged rotary knob with a touchpad occupying the entirety of the top of the hub. Like the current MMI Touch, the new version’s touchpad will recognize handwriting, plus scrolling and, purportedly, panning and zooming a la iPad or devices with a similar interface. The demo at the NVIDIA booth (they being the provider of the Tegra chipset that powers it) was running Google Earth seamlessly, and Audi says it has over 100 engineers working on other bits and bobs of software. Wowzers.
