Oracle Announces Facebook Windshield Integration
By Bruce Tierney-Oracle on Apr 01, 2013
Hey all you dedicated Facebook users! Can’t put down Facebook while you’re driving? We have the solution for you. Stay connected with your friends even while driving with Oracle’s newly released “Facebook Windshield”.
Combining automotive hardware and integration software, the Facebook Windshield is an Engineered System that keeps your focus on Facebook so you are not wasting so much time dealing with common driving annoyances such as paying attention to traffic lights and watching for stop signs.
Empirical studies have shown that 60% of the time, drivers are moving in a straight direction. So why not put those fingers to better use by staying connected with your friends using the heads-up display windshield keyboard. And when you need to turn the wheel, put one of those knees to work. They’re not doing anything and they’re horrible at typing.
Feedback from the testing program was very positive in the age 16-17 category. Below are a few quotes from the category:
- “dude…you gotta check this thing out”
- “I think people who worry more about driving details than Facebook just don’t get it.”
- “They really thought this thing through…after my traffic incident and after my airbag deflated, it let me finish my post. This is awesome”
Some concerns from the age 18+ categories however focused mostly on safety. These concerns were emphatically put to rest, much to the satisfaction of the beta testers with the following assurance from Oracle product management: “I can say with 75% confidence that all concerns in the 4 areas of enjoyment, collaboration, entertainment, and safety will be addressed prior to delivery of Facebook Windshield.”
