Mercedes Joystick Car - Not So New After All

Got this email today touting this cool new Mercedes that uses a joystick rather than a steering wheel. Perfect for the Nintendo generation, eh? Except that the F 200 was a concept introduced at the 1996 Paris Auto Show.

Interesting that 12 years later we're still stuck with steering wheels. I'm going to the Atlanta Auto Show next week so I'll let you know if I find anything I can drive with my xBox controller.

It is amazing to me how they spend so much time and money "inventing" new things.
