"START ME UP"...
Mazda is trying to bond with its future drivers by installing a “USB stick key”—or flash drive—instead of the traditional cylinder lock key system. Yes, this means you’ll be able to start your car with a USB dongle as well as transfer driving directions and music to the internal hard drive of this concept car, dubbed the Sassou.
Being shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show, this 3-door hatchback design concept is, if you don’t mind the reference, somewhat pod-like (REALLY pod-like, unlike the iPod, which is not technically pod-like at all).
Now replace the "USB Stick Key" with Apple's USB powered "Micro-Mini" I described in my recent post, and you've got the coolest car with a Mac personality. I mean folks are already installing the current Mac Mini in their cars, so this is not that far-fetched.
Now does the USB stick key come with various keychain designs to choose from?
