Touchscreen displays that require drivers to take their eyes off the road can be dangerous, so one entrepreneur has invented a potential solution: a no-look car touchscreen.

Designer Matthaeus Krenn's design consists of a user interface far more minimal than that of existing touchscreens. Rather than having rows of buttons that require a driver's close attention, the no-look car touchscreen can recognize multiple fingers at once. This allows drivers to use different combinations of fingers to control 8 different settings including volume, temperature, air conditioning and more.

iPad users can test the no-look car touchscreen concept by checking out the simulator on Krenn's website. So far, people’s reactions to this technology have been mixed. Stats for No-Look Touchscreen Devices Trending: Older & Mild
