10 Trick New Car Features #3
Audi MMI Touch
Offered on the 2011 A8 and A7, Audi's Multi Media Interface system, or "MMI Touch," is one of the trickest new features out there. Like some reverse-engineered alien technology, the system allows occupants to write letters with the tip of a finger, enabling the effortless use of navigation and audio screens if you have a rudimentary ability to spell. MMI Touch also recognizes characters and letters from other languages including Latin, Cyrillic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and possibly the language of the Reptoids. (We'll have to double check that last one.) To really give your friends a shock, allow the person with the worst penmanship to give the system a try. Amazingly, the system will recognize their scribbling like it can read minds, which of course it can...but we've already said too much.
