The concept vehicle of Sony is entirely about entertainment. Actually, Its SC-1 is more or less a shuttle outfitted with high-res image sensors, displays, AI, 5G data connectivity via Docomo, alternative fuels, LIDAR and a bevy of ultra-sonic onboard. It has the ability to be operated autonomously or driven. Sony claimed that the image sensors placed around the car are more sensitive with the displays inside high-quality. You will be able to drive the buggy at night without headlamps. The window becomes unnecessary since the image sensor captures the surroundings, and by placing a high-definition display in that area. You can display various images to people around the vehicle. Sounds like a perfect way to add in face scanning to deliver highly personalized ads to everyone in the vehicle.
Sony is moving one step forward and will use mixed reality to overlay CGI on the windows, so that movement itself can be enjoyed more. Mother Nature will use a digital facelift. The chances of something like this actually making it out on the open road anytime soon are probably pretty slim. But, perhaps seeing it idling at an amusement park, it wouldn’t be too farfetched. Sony has indicated that it’s been touring the SC-1 around the Okinawa Science and Technology Graduate University College since September. Mercedes showed off something similar with its silver bean-like F 015 concept a few years ago. That featured leather egg-shaped lounge chairs, wood floors, and 4K touch-screen displays.
