By now, you're probably familiar - even if you don't have one yourself - with the computer screen many new cars have between the front seats. In order to protect the driver from distraction, such screens can't show movies, for instance, or even allow you to enter navigation destinations or other complex jobs while the car is moving.
But what about the passenger? There's little danger in distracting the passenger. In fact, the passenger might actually like some distraction. Starting in January, the Mercedes-Benz S-class will be available with a screen - a single screen - that shows separate views to the driver and the front-seat passenger. It's sort of like those baseball cards that change images as you turn them in your hand, but the effect is much better.
