Phones and Cars
December 6th, 2005

Mobhappy has a post today about Auto-Txt , a system that requires your mobile phone to be present before your car will start. The post begins a musing about the mobile phone/person relationship: ‘This is especially interesting as it’s pointing the way of the future, where your mobile will be as much proof of identity, as a personal communication device.’

The smart mobbing of devices is also at work here with a security symbiosis between phone and car. More interaction surely lies ahead. The Auto-Txt phone operates on Bluetooth and is equipped with satellite GPS tracking as cars increasingly are. Music-equipped phones could soon integrate with car audio systems (if that is not happening already). Perhaps ringtones to sync with horns?
