NVIDIA x Icon Icar: 3-D Gauge Cluster Concept


Well-known computer graphics company NVIDIA and mobile solutions company icon icar have teamed up to develop a 3-D gauge cluster for cars. There’s definitely a whole lot going on in these clusters like radio and navigation information along with the standard speedometer and fuel gauge. Everything’s presented in a very appealing display, that might even end up lowering costs for manufacturers because everything is digital (Changing measurements like mph to kpm and Fahrenheit to Celsius would require no additional parts).

The innovative vertical yoke removes most of the traditional stress points that cycling generates in a garment, allowing for a free range of movement. The curved waistband is higher in the back to hide your crack from the world and lower in the front to allow you to lean forward and ride in comfort.”
