The Z-Car Cockpit project
The Idea 
Eureka !
During a looong car trip, I was looking to my dashboard and saying to me that it looks quite boring. So I started thinking "what if it where an LCD screens based dashboard ?", then functionalities allowing the user to customize the appareance of its dashboard, appeared. If I add functionalities to to improve management of the long ways ? Like MP3 player, GPS navigation, etc...
Hmmmmm.... what do I neeed ? could I make it ?
An idea was born...
