Android Concept Cars

Authored by: Steven Blum — Apr 13, 2011

Android is a great time waster in the car (when you're not the driver) and many people also use their Android as a navigational system. So why not embed the Android directly into your car? Hyundai has done just that at the Seoul Motor Show with their Blue 2 concept car. Now the kids can play angry birds in the back while you curse at traffic.

Hyundai's not the first to introduce an Android infotainment system. SAAB was the first to get in on the game with their IQon concept car. More than 500 sensors access the system to provide an overview of all functions of the car. You can also use the system for GPS navigation and to surf the web (of course). 

We think the whole idea is pretty cool. Take a look at the commercial below and let us know if you agree.
