QNX digital instrument cluster adds dash to Freescale Mad Mac vehicle

A couple of months ago, I introduced you to the QNX digital instrument cluster, which demonstrates how automakers can migrate from mechanical gauges driven by stepper motors to virtual gauges driven by microprocessors and graphics chips.

Well, I just discovered that the QNX digital cluster forms part of Freescale’s "Mad Mac," a concept car designed to showcase Freescale automotive silicon. The Mad Mac includes, among other things, an external combustion engine with a clear acrylic block -- reminds me of the Visible V8 that I always wanted as a kid.

Check out this video on the Mad Mac; the QNX digital cluster makes its appearance at the 3:25 remaining mark and in the closing frames of the video:
