NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor powers Lamborghini Huracan digital dash
Lamborghini has already offered up all the specs on its sexy new exotic sports car called the Huracan. The Huracan is the replacement for the most popular model that Lamborghini ever produced, the Gallardo. The Huracan has a V10 engine producing over 600 hp.
One of the coolest features of the Huracan isn’t under the hood; it's in the center of the dash. The car has a LCD in the center of the steering wheel that displays virtual gauges reports CNET. Those virtual gauges are shown on a 12.3-inch TFT display that is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 30 chip.
The screen has a resolution of 1440 x 540 and the chip is fast enough to let the graphics flow at 60fps. That means that the virtual tach can smoothly keep up with the engine. The virtual instrument cluster has three modes. Full Drive mode gives a virtual analog tach along with smaller displays for fuel level and temperatures.
Mixed mode replaces some of those gauges with a navigation screen. Full Nav mode fills most of the screen with navigation details. It's unclear if the LCD is touch sensitive. It can also show other gauges and climate controls. The Huracan is certainly all exotic on the inside and out with Nappa leather, Alcantara and full LED lighting for every aspect of the car.

Apple's first wearable will not ship until 2015
If true, Apple, as it has always been, must be very confident about its timing. After all, it will be the company's new product from an entirely different category, and people will most likely be patient about it.
About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
