At CES 2019 in Las Vegas, the auto industry showed how it may combine augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) with smart glass technologies.
Ford showcased its Feel the View technology, allowing visually-impaired passengers to “feel” the passing landscape with their fingertips. GM showed how children could keep busy on long trips by sketching on smart windows, while Toyota presented a technology that enables you to zoom in on specific objects outside the car. And Mercedes has a concept car using smart glass that can be overlaid with AR graphics.
Smart automotive glass is still in concept stage but some ideas are already causing a stir. For example, instead of those chair-back DVD screens … imagine if you could watch movies directly on your car window!
