The Rin­speed Bam­Boo elec­tric con­cept car, a social net­work­ing vehi­cle, was intro­duced at the Gene­va Auto Show by Har­man Inter­na­tion­al Indus­tries. Dri­vers can inter­act with Face­book, Twit­ter, sms and email by con­vert­ing text-based infor­ma­tion to voice through the driver’s smart­phone. Traf­fic infor­ma­tion, pod­casts, weath­er, news, Twit­ter and Face­book would all be as acces­si­ble and easy to select as lis­ten­ing to a radio and chang­ing the chan­nel.
