Thought you might like to know that the Honda Studio E concept vehicle has an LCD panel inside the back running Mac OS X. I’ve enclosed two images:

Inside, Studio E features front bench seating and two rear pod seats that flip down from the sides, yet store in a minimum amount of space when not in use. The mobile entertainment system uses a personal audio computer and can mix multiple inputs simultaneously, i.e. turntables and an effects generator or a more traditional guitar, drum machine or microphone could also be attached.

The personal audio computer has its own workstation with keyboard, mouse and a 17-inch liquid crystal display. To play to a larger crowd, a motorized 42-inch plasma screen rotates down from the ceiling and interfaces with the audio computer to display custom visual patterns in step with the music out the back of the vehicle, or it can play DVDs.

The mobile entertainment system transmits more than 800 watts of power to 11 speakers throughout the vehicle ranging in size from 2-inch tweeters to thunderous 10-inch subwoofers located underneath the rear cargo floor.

After just seeing the new Honda Element at the Philadelphia International Auto Show I have to admit to being intrigued by this vehicle. It may look a little boxy but the Element really puts the ‘Utility’ back in SUV. Although the Element has an auxiliary input for your iPod it is missing the one thing that would make me jump – XM Radio. -Ed
