Project Detroit - Micro Stang
Earlier this week Microsoft officially unveiled “Project Detroit,” a 2012 Mustang converted to 1967 bodywork created to inspire developers to think about building apps and automotive technologies of the future. The car was built in cooperation with West Coast Customs of Corona, CA as part of their television series, Inside West Coast Customs.

Connected-device scenarios featured in the car incorporate Kinect for Xbox 360, Xbox 360, the Windows operating system, Windows Phone, Windows Azure, Bing, Ford Sync and more. Project Detroit can be remotely located, unlocked and started all from the Viper SmartStart app for Windows Phone. Swiping the touch screen instrument cluster toggles between different dashboard skins, and one can use the tablet embedded in the passenger-side dash to do anything from surfing the Web to sending messages that display on the rear windshield for other cars. Kinetics embedded in the car also allow for live audio and video streams to be remotely heard or watched using a Windows phone.

You can watch the build of Project Detroit on Inside West Coast Customs this Sunday, March 25th at 6:00pm Pacific (9:00pm Eastern) on the Discovery Channel’s Velocity.
