‘Project Detroit’: custom Ford Mustang with Windows 8 and Kinect Integration

People over at Pimp My Ride and Justin Bieber’s Batman-themed Cadillac have teamed up with Microsoft to create a mixture of Automobile and Technology.

Project Detroit, a concept car created to fuel developers interests for making apps for automobiles in the future. The Mustang includes Microsoft technologies from various niches for Kinect for Xbox 360, Xbox 360, Windows 8, Windows Phone, Windows Azure, Bing, Ford Sync, etc.



The Concept Ford Mustang has a built-in Wi-Fi, display on the windshield, Kinect sensors at the rear and front of the car, and even a Windows 8-powered touchscreen digital instrument cluster.

Microsoft has also packed in Ford Sync, an Xbox 360, and a rear windshield projector screen. With the Windows Phone you can locate, unlock and even start the car from a Windows Phone app, One more awesome piece is that you can talk on the phone to broadcast your voice to the outside of the car.
