These are the codebases and design assets for prototypes used in the thought-piece "Re-imagining the instrument cluster in cars" written by ustwo. There are 4 web based prototypes in this repository representing:
- An unbranded archetype of an instrument cluster
- Concept cluster UI of a Ferrari California
- Concept cluster UI of a Mercedes Benz S-class
- Adaptive UI prototype - using headtracking as a basis for judging viewing angle.
Also included in the design assets folder is a PSD file for you to play with too.

The primary tool used for building these prototypes has been the FramerJS framework built for rapid prototyping and experimentation. This can be found at http://framerjs.com/ and their realtime application Framer Studio.
Also used is PaperJS http://paperjs.org/ for vector graphics scripting.
Please feel free to comment on the prototypes and the codebase along with feeling free to riff and build on them if possible. Attribution to ustwo will be much appreciated.
