Baby Boomers have a lot to look forward to,... like being able to read the dashboard.
I read a press release that came from Ford Motor Company about research the company completed that clearly indicated the need to change the size of the fonts on the dashboard. And it needs to happen sooner than later as a result of baby boomer's failing eyesight. What a concept. Imagine actually being able to know how much gas is in the tank of the car or what radio station you are tuned into. And just think... what other products should be adapted to products we use everyday that would make it easier not only for Boomers to use, but easier at any age or ability.
Ahh... What Is This World Coming To ....where great design impacts the human experience.
What a concept!
Baby boomers have a lot to look forward to if Ford's implementation of their research proves successful. Could this just be the beginning? Can you imagine the possibilities to have a GPS display projected on the windshield of the car, small enough not to get in the way of driving but large enough to glance over and make sure one is not only on the right road... but actually ON THE ROAD.

What is the world coming to? Seems like these changes make all the sense in the world. So why does it seem to take so long to implement the obvious? I don't know. I'm just sayin.

ah no! Not another feature that will distract me from my driving down the highway. I will be celebrating my 75th birthday in a few days and my state is going to make me take a new drivers test. Do you suppose they will ask me if i can read the dashboard or do I just put it in drive and go?

Holy mother of all living beings. Where does this Janice live and when is she on the street so I can be safe in my driveway when she is behind the wheel.
