BMW Vision Next 100

Autonomous driving is so 21st century
shape shifting body panels...makes me wanna rewatch Demolition Man
is it just me or do BMW EVs and this concept look like hamsters/guinea pigs?




Quote:
it can switch between autonomous and human-driven modes. (At least the second one is an option.) Those modes are called Ease and Boost, respectively. The interior controls transform to meet the needs of each mode.

Boost is interesting because it takes the whole “Ultimate Driving Machine” thing to the next level by using augmented reality to help the driver become the best driver they can be. The car shows the ideal racing line, steering points and speeds, BMW says. In Ease, the car is completely self-driving.

Then there’s the “skin” of the car. As Top Gear explains, inside the triangular “scales” turn red to warn the driver of upcoming hazards, and as the front wheels turn, the bodywork wrapped around them stretches and contorts.

I don’t know how much better that would be than conventional wheels and tires, but it’s neat to look at and think about.

On a somewhat related note, BMW will be celebrating their 100 years and also the featured marque at this year's Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. You BMW gear heads should definitely check it out. I went last year and it was simply an amazing event. It's a high quality, family-friendly event, so bring your cameras, watercoolers, hats, sunscreen, and ear plugs.

I thought the alien music was very fitting given how extra-terrestrial this car looks
