A different view.
Without perspective, it's just noise.
Here at Mensen, we believe that the only way to make progress is by understanding what's going on around us, not just hearing it. In our Perspectives area, we will be exploring trends and news with deep insights as well as our own ideas and thinking about the future. We won't simply be reposting press releases, but instead giving our informed opinion on the news that's shaping the future of the automobile, as well as the wider world around us.
If you enjoy our perspectives, please sign up for our news digest as well, where twice a month we'll send out a curated list of what's happening in design, technology, and experiences, as well as a roundup of our newest articles and thoughts.
We’ve taken on the task of showing what MBUX could have been. With our redesign, we’ve imagined how Mercedes might have maximized impact and experience without compromising style or alienating existing customers.
While the MBUX interactions are improved, the visual design is old-fashioned and outdated, diminishing the improvements and ultimately making the system as a whole feel a step behind the competition.
