LinuxDevices.com: Linux + Java turbocharge “Super8 Hemi” concept car

Today, DaimlerChrysler unveiled its newest concept car at
the North American International Auto Show: the Dodge Super8 Hemi
“all-American sedan” — with Linux and Java inside.

“Freeman Thomas, the DaimlerChrysler VP who oversaw the Super8
Hemi’s design, says the new car “embodies the culture and essence
of American optimism. The . . . bold, in-your-face design shows our
ability to embrace our love for the sedan and meld it with
invigorating execution and technological advancement. With its
distinctive tall stance, Hemi powertrain, and telematics
applications throughout, the Super8 symbolizes everything we loved
about sedans then, plus everything we need now.”

“Everything we need now” apparently includes Linux and Java —
because they’re both embedded in the sexy new concept car’s
“Infotronic” system!”
