We have seen the future of steering wheels, and it includes the “Audi James 2025”. Touted as a “virtual cockpit of the future,” this prototype features an auto-pilot, also known as “jet-fighter mode”, is activated, the steering wheel, seating position and light coding system automatically change. The display shows the car’s planned driving maneuvers while a secondary screen provides access to infotainment functions.
“The dash mounted, center screen even allows the use of gestures like you might use on the new Xbox One gaming console. For the less tech-savvy, gesture control is a way of using a camera to track hand location and using your hand as a remote by pointing at the screen, a feature that Google recently filed a patent for,” reports Gas2.
