Eyes on the Road + Touchscreen = Hybrid interfaces.
Hybrid Interfaces adds a physical dial and a new quality of eyes-off interactions to touch-screens. Dial manipultaion is captured by the capcitive screen just like finger-movement, without the need for additional wiring. Read full concept (1 min)

Touchscreens all feel the same.
Touchscreens are becoming a dominant method for input.

*Pictures under glass* lack the possibility to create a distinctive visceral User Experience and do not allow the user to build and rely on embodied cognition.

The Addition of Hapticals (= physical input devices) creates value by enabling interactions on a touchscreen without a direct view and adding a more tangible experience.

Haptics are low-price and low-complex input devices, that make use of the sensor surface of capacitive touchscreens – no extra wiring required.

Strong vibrations can add the feeling of latching points to Hapticals – with different articulations depending on the function currently displayed.

The Haptical offers the rich experience of mechanical interaction with the flexibility of over-the-air updates of a purely digital interface.

Based on my explorations, an exemplary cockpit interface for the Infotainment system of semi-autonomous vehicles was developed.
