You know those detachable-face head units for car
stereos? How about a head unit that is also a cellphone?
The phone could use the speakers in the car to broadcast
the other side of the conversation; it could turn the
radio/CD down or off automatically when the phone rings
I'm sure all this
has been done already, but here's the
piece de resistance: the detachable face of the head unit
is a 'stand alone' cellphone.
It would charge its battery while connected to the car,
and would give you a good reason to actually bother to
detach the face - security bonus.
While I'm at it, I may as well add controls for the security
system for the car, the house, the office, just so you can
lose absolutely _everything_ at once.
