BMW's new iDrive will predict what you want | FOS Future Lab

In the beginning, there was the dashboard switch but pretty soon there were so many switches no one could find the right one, and they became so tiny no one could use them anyway. So 20 years ago BMW invented the rotary dial and digital display. All functions were suddenly in one big knob, but you had to scroll through a lot of menus, and a great many functions, to find the one you wanted. iDrive got better, a lot better, and like so much that BMW does went on to influence the entire industry.
