The video never loaded for me. I grabbed it directly instead:
http://www.branmuffinindustries.com/products/interview.mov

This is a neat proof of concept / class project item, but I can't see
it being installed in a vehicle as it is, and I am really surprised
the web site indicates you can buy one. It looks very "beta" to me.

Jack mentioned the graphics which is a big one. My concerns would be:

1. Monitor washout in sunlight. What type of displays are being used?
Most displays are virtually impossible to see outdoors. Even in the
cockpit of a car, this could be an issue.

2. Update speed - It took awhile to update the panels when shifting
gears. Does the rest of it take that long?

3. I'm not big on the twin monitors deal. Either use a custom, wide
monitor, or at least some visual tricks to make the system appear
seamless.
