Valuable in a future economy of shared objects and transportation as a service
Establish a sense of trust, respect and belonging toward a product which may no longer belong to us.
Strengthen brand loyalty beyond form, aesthetics and heritage
What if brands had a tangible personality beyonds AI?

Static touch points
. In human-to-human interaction, authenticity is achieved by 'balance of power' or mutual effort.
What if touch-points could meet a user's efforts half way? i.e. reaching for a handshake or opening arms for a hug.
What if touch points could suggest interaction via illumination, surface depth or dynamic change in texture?
Limited range of customized interaction points
user, recognized as a 'preset' not person
What if touch points were significantly more or infinitely customizable?
for existing tech tools. i.e. computer keyboard and mouse
What if the vehicle could learn from and adapt to its user?
Secondary object needed for communication with vehicle.
Hindering sense of an authentic and direct connection. i.e. Key Fob, Smart Phone, Access Card
Understand first how connection is authenticated between human and human.
