Android is already in our phones and tablets, but what about cars? French Parrot unveiled a car stereo system powered by Google’s mobile OS last year – ASTEROID. Now Clarion is entering the same market with a similar product called Mirage. It’s a 6.5-inch system with a built-in GPS, radio, SD card slot, USB port, Bluetooth and a number of preloaded apps like Facebook and Angry Birds. Needless to say, Clarion doesn’t suggest playing any game or checking your friends on Facebook while driving, but it’s a cool thing to be able to do so while waiting for someone in a car. Or to allow other people in the vehicle to entertain themselves while you drive.

Unfortunately you can’t get the Clarion Mirage in a local store. The company is pitching the new product towards car makers which — if everything goes as planned — will integrate it into their vehicles and additionally make it sing along vehicle telematics and readouts, reverse camera, steering wheel controls, a DVD player or changer…

    Clarion may not recommend it, but you know that’s just what people will do.

    We really don’t need anymore distractions behind the wheel.

    In Britain, there had been several attempts to build steam cars with varying degrees of success, with Thomas Rickett even attempting a production run in 1860.
