Space Up! Blue Could Be Apple iCar

A few months ago, we posted an article on a rumored iCar coming into production as a collaborative project between Apple and VW. After seeing the VW Space Up! Blue concept car at the LA Auto Show this week, and after reading speculations from others, I'm starting to think this could be the high-buzz mystery car.

The major contributor sparking the rumor fire was the touch-screen surfaces found in the vehicle.

"The touch screen on the car is supposed to use proximity sensors that react to hand gestures like the iPhone, the only difference being that in this one, you're not limited to only touching the screen," Wired Blog reported. "You can also touch a menu feature that allows you to place your hands near the display and still move the icons on the screen, like magic. That's trippy."
