    You can already do this with an app and a tablet.

    I tried to use a Tablet as a button box however found it too frustrating to use. When driving you can only glance at the tablet and I frequently missed or pressed the wrong button, or the tablet didn't register my button press. Also the buttons were just too small to be useful.

    Now I use the tablet for full screen displays such as Dash Meter Pro and a physical button box.

    The latter is used by a combination of muscle memory plus the tactile feel of the button and switches, and is much easier and more enjoyable to use when driving. Because my button box has a number of different button shapes I can also use some of it with VR.
