So, MINI wants you to have a fuller experience when driving one of their cars, and one way they’re going to do that is by using augmented reality glasses/goggles. Now, at the Shanghai motor show, the automaker “revealed its vision for connectivity between augmented reality (AR) eyewear and the car.”
It’s most likely not a functional concept yet, but it does show the BMW-owned brand’s ambition to offer something like this in the near future. What purpose would it have, we hear you say? Well, it’d do the same job a regular head-up display does, but the information displayed would always be visible as it’d no longer be projected on the windscreen but onto the lenses instead.
It’d obviously be used to provide the driver with extra information and presenting it in a virtual reality fashion (overlaying it over what you actually see).
So far there’s nothing to see, though, as all we have are a bunch of thick-looking glasses/goggles and no real exact explanation as to possible future uses.
