MATERIALS THAT ENABLE AND ENHANCE UX

Unlike smartphones and other consumer electronics, we inhabit vehicles. That means comfort, textures, special fragrances and smells, and eliminating smudges and glare on screens, all become part of the user experience. Materials with embedded electronics and sensors also promise to play a major role in the user experience.
