Lexus Hybrid Gets Mouse with Trackball

Lexus has included a mouse-like control system for their inbuilt GPS in the upcoming HS 250h hybrid. Making controls for either the radio, AC, GPS, or whatever has always been a legitimate concern for automakers not only because it improves a driver’s experience, but because distracting or complicated controls can be a genuine safety concern. 

Jalopnik got a hands on with the new “Remote Touch” system, and they seem to approve.  Blurring the lines between the mouse that one uses all day and the controls one uses on the drive home does seem like a pretty good idea.  Then again, the guys over at Jalopnik are a bunch of no-good bloggers.  What about the people out there with real, non-digital jobs?
