I'd like to see a few more buttons on the CT, but I find the above button array annoying. I prefer a skeuomorphic design, where the layout and shape of the physical controls mimic their function. For instance, the "Hazard" button should literally be a red triangle, not just painted with one.

I absolutely detest TV remotes that are symmetrical grids of square buttons. My TiVo remote has so many different shapes that I can operate it completely on feel.

I'll definitely be getting a set of customizable S3xy Buttons to customize my CT.
You think that’s too many buttons?

yes! and just what I intended to convey about “I’d like to see Tesla apply itself to physical switches” on one hand the vector approach is slop that’s fun to look at but not use; on the other hand I tend to think it won’t be too long before the “all touchscreen” approach in Tesla’s feels very Web 1.0
I hadn’t seen the s3xy buttons before thank you. theyre a fantastic example of what innovation could look like in physical UI, in autos in particular

I imagine if it applied itself, Tesla could do even better in this physical switches space
How about a happy compromise. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone came up with a programmable high resolution version of this to be used as UI. It would be based on nano technology. Pixels would use less energy when they act as display and slightly more when they have to physically move to become a button. Of course they don’t have to move only in one dimension. Their position could be in relation to each other. That way you could have a slider, a knob, …. all kinda interface people are already used to. That way a physical control could be context sensitive like a digital one on a screen.

No no no no no no!

People will use it to make a 3D image of their BUTT! I don’t need that in my CT! Just look at what butts have done to the copy machine business!

Don't limit your imagination. Like the sounds in CT, you will be able to customize your BUTTs. When you ask CT to do something it does not want to do, instead of a soulless error message, it can tell you kiss it's 3D high-tech BUTT, but it will be a supermodel BUTT you uploaded. You will be looking forward for things to go wrong.

Thought this would be fun/didn't want to work - any anime, etc., fans that can help fill these out? If a movie/show is set in a certain time period, would be interesting to know.

For anyone interested in the customizable buttons, there's a two-year-long thread over on TMC:

https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/s3xy-buttons-at-abstract-ocean.245552/

The vendors participate and answer questions.

Does look like it, whether it's a period photo or a sci-fi take on it I'm not quite sure as I can't make out what the black shading on top of the car is. Judging from the overall silhouette, rear wheel arch shape and lack of NACA duct on the side I think it's safe to call it an LP500 though.

Forgot C8, that also appears to be a side profile shot of a Wally Power.
