The UK Car Magazine said that Virtual reality may be a buzzword thrown around at every CES، but Audi looks to have found a genuinely useful application from the tech. By using a combination of vehicle data and VR، the brand from Ingolstadt may have just made all car journeys fun – or productive، depending on your priorities.
According to The UK Car Magazine، the idea isn’t that complex. Passengers in the backseats don VR headsets، and then a counterpart virtual world is created for them using data from the vehicle. If the car turns left، the spaceship you’re flying in the game turns left، too. Equally، junctions and traffic lights could also serve as checkpoints or power-up areas.
This comes with two key benefits; not only does the game feel more engaging، but because the real-life movements you feel correspond to something you can see، you’re less likely to get car sick، too.
Right now the technology is in a demo stage، but holoride – the start-up Audi has formed to scale-up and develop this tech – already has one possible client. We were shown what the technology could do using Disney's ‘Marvel’s Avengers: Rocket's Rescue Run' and it makes a convincing case.
