A look at Microsoft’s Project Detroit Mustang (video)

We have written about Microsoft’s Project Detroit, their customized Ford Mustang before, and today we have some video of the car in action.

The 1967 Mustang is decked in neon lights, is fully web connected and sports Windows 8 tablets and Windows Phone 7 connectivity and control. It of course comes with full Kinect and Xbox 360 integration, playable on the pop-up projection screen.

The car features a custom Windows Phone application which can change the accent lighting and the horn sound “ringtone”, activating the “projector screen” or send a message to the rear windshield. It also has Viper SmartStart technology , so it can be remotely located, unlocked and started all from a Windows Phone.

The car also allows one to stream video from the Kinects included in the dashboard to your Windows Phone, and, from the same application, use your Windows Phone as a microphone for the car’s external audio PA system.
