We’re in the 21 century and everywhere we look we’re surrounded by all kind of technologies one smarter than another. Everithing has something “smart” in it, even refrigerators have built-in televisions and internet connections, while our mobile phones contain more computing power than a NASA control room from the ’70s. So it’s time that our cars also to get some of thin new futuristic features. Keeping this in mind, automakers are also ready to ride the tech-train to tomorrow, and Toyota has provided a glimpse of a new way to give passengers a window to the world.
Even if the car already has such a window, the car makers rised a new problem: what if the glass was able to provide both information of the world outside and an interactive tool to view it? The best engineers and designers from Toyota Motor Europe and the Copenhagen Instituted of Interaction Design have begun thinking about the future, and it could feature a rather unique option for the rear windows. The solution wasn’t very far – touch-screen glass would allow one to see how far objects lie in the distance, pinch to zoom on an area outside and to generally learn more about what’s going on outside.
This new system it’s called the Window to the World concept, and you can see what it can do by watching the video below.
