Cars have been incorporating new digital technology and screens for years now. But one part of the car seems like it hasn’t been upgraded in decades. The steering wheel. 

Naturally, the first to develop a true digital and performance steering wheel is world famous German motor company BMW. Besides for offering a secure grip even in extreme driving conditions, the BMW M Performance Steering Wheel even has a small digital screen at the 12 o’clock mark, along with a colored gear shift indicator.

The small screen offers helpful driving and under-the-hood-information, while the gear shift indicator warns the driver when it is the optimal time to up shift.
