The annual “Further with Ford” event saw ford engineers presented an in-car water dispenser called the “On-the-go H2O”. The machine consisted of a drinking-water tap in the centre console of the car. This new invention, if introduced in cars would be a highly appreciated addition to the long lines of in-car refrigerators and other high-end facilities. The engineer who designed it though said that this was a possible way of saving water and may even provide clean water in areas where there is a scarcity.
The On-the-go-H2O is a simple act of machinery. The water is supplied from the natural condensation of the car’s air conditioner. In this prototype, the water gets collected in a pan, where it is collected in a pan through a tube. From where it goes through a filter and comes out of a dispenser found at the Home Depot. Though the users are not likely to get this feature in a Ford vehicle anytime in near future.
Among other apps, the “Phone as Car” was also exhibited at the annual event. As car and ride-sharing have become extremely common these days, the users would feel good top have his preferred settings in the car, irrespective of wherever he travelled to. Three other interesting techs were exhibited at the annual “Further with Ford” event, which might be future prospects for mighty new cars. Three engineers presented these unusual ideas that they have spent quite some time working on; an in-car water dispenser, an app to control car settings irrespective of where you travel and a translator app between the driver and the passenger.
