Tesla Interface Concept

Postby Peter » Thu Mar 19, 2015 6:16 pm

German firm Bureau Oberhaeuser has a new concept for Tesla's interface that takes a cue from the world of smart devices and tablets, allowing multiple apps to be tiled at once and moved around at will. Founder Martin Oberhäuser was inspired to build it after having a rather tepid reaction to Tesla's real design.

As he reports on his Medium blog:

While the UX has some promising rudiments, the visual design could be from the early Web 2.0 era. When you're brave enough to replace all your in-car controls with a huge touchscreen, why stop there? Why use plenty of skeuomorphisms to mimic actual buttons instead of emphasizing the fact that you no longer have those haptic buttons and detach your UI from their technical restrictions?

Oberhäuser's alternative vision was a labor of love, not one designed under contract for Tesla. But it really is an inventive take on the console, one that Oberhäuser hopes will take root somewhere and spur car companies to build simpler, more intuitive infotainment systems that make controlling music and navigation a breeze instead of a distraction.

If you're going to use all 17 inches of space on that Tesla screen, you might as well dream big:

Inspired by the 17 inch touchscreen of Tesla's awesome Model S we designed an interface concept for a new generation of car infotainment systems. Based on Teslas current interface we designed a concept using responsive widgets that can be rearranged on a flexible grid. The widgets are available in multiple sizes and can freely be combined for a customized user experience.

This is an early stage concept that was built within a few weeks as a side project. We are aware that it’s much harder to design a car interface under real life conditions. It would require much more work and real life testing to make this concept ready for market, but we believe in the general approach and will continue to refine it.
