As a designer, I find it hard to sort out all tasks that need to be done in the manner that they actually ought to be done. It's alright to use organizers and set up all sorts of reminders bus sometimes, they simply don't work well enough. Having a device that remembers what you ought to do and actually makes sure you do it can only be counted as a great step forward.
I do not think that this or any other device should be used to text while driving. Only after you have had a lot of practice with it will it be easy to use, and it will still take your attention away from your driving.

i agree if interfaced with smart phone will be really cool, and would have alot of application but still i dont think it is the solution to texting while driving. the main threat while driving is not ONLY taking your eyes of the road, but it is also the lapse of concentration that is the main reason for accidents. So anything that may affect your concentration will driving should be avoided.
