Drivers could soon have a new distraction to deal with while driving-- the Internet.
Ford unveiled The MyFord Touch at the Consumer Electronics Show this week. The all-touch screen console gives drivers access to maps, Web pages, and high definition videos right in the dashboard of their car.
"What the mouse did for the PC, we want MyFord Touch to do to the interior of Ford vehicles," said Mark Fields of Ford Motor Co.
Many, however, say it will lead to trouble.
"It doesn't take a brain scientist to understand that if you're now interacting with your computer, which is a much higher level than even texting, that you're going to have a much greater chance of damaging somebody or yourself," MIT professor Nicholas Ashford warned.
Ford says the features can be controlled by voice command and that videos will only work when the car is in park.
