Ian Callum is a different sort of person altogether. Whatever he thinks, whatever he does, takes the form of a very aesthetic and good looking design, be it the cars like Jaguar or Aston Martins. And if he is looking forward to introduce some technology in a car, it ought to be good. If Mr. Callum is to be believed, Jaguar is working on side windows that will go up and down not with only a touch on the glass.

Speaking to Autoblog on the sidelines of the Detroit Auto Show, Ian According to Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum said, "For instance, if you want to pull the windows down, you touch a certain area of the glass and you can actually just drop them down." Though, Callum comprehended that, "These things are all a work in progress at the moment."

Speaking about when one can see such technology taking shape in a production avatar, Callum said, "I don't know when, but we certainly know how to do it." Based on the proximity based switchgear system, a touch screen window might be a cause of concern in terms of safety, to which Callum said, "It's a whole new genre of disciplines that we have to think about – what is safe."

"I think if it's a very specific area, there's absolutely no ambiguity about what you're trying to do – it's fine," said Callum. Though the touchscreen windows will be a whole new thing for the markets, proximity switches are not. The Jaguar has already provided interior overhead lighting controls and a glove box release, which work on a touch basis in their Jaguar XF Sedan.
