Peugeot Makes "DUI" Stand for Driving Under the Internet

advertisement

It's hard not to be a bit of a Luddite when it comes to car technologies that could take the driver's attention away from the road as people really seem distracted enough, but we'll give the Peugeot BB1 a fair shake.

At the heart of the conceptual vehicle's ability to connect to the World Wide Web is an iPhone dock built into the dashboard. It would then handle all the processing by way of an on-board computer so — we can only guess — to free the iPhone up to serve up that net goodness. From there, you'd be able to do everything you'd be able to on a computer, from the looks of it.

Obviously, there are times when this would be super useful, such as emailing someone in the event that you need assistance. On the other hand, the Internet provides endless distractions, which hopefully won't be available to the driver while the vehicle is in motion. Check out more of the BB1 in Dvice's photo gallery.
