Though this product is very compelling, but the Mitsubishi’s innovative EMIRAI automotive interface concept will be available in no less than 10 YEARS! This is the kind of technology that you see in moives like Minority Report, the interactive is very exciting and will for sure, make driving alot funner and probably easier too. Along with the main technolgy it also has a curved, touch-sensitive rear projection display that makes today’s flat LCD panels look quite out dated. Other new and interesting features to this car are the 18 activity buttons on the steering whell. The EMIRAI interface in the car also have other features such as an infrared camera and Doppler sensor to measure facial temperature and heart rates . The taken from these camers not only tells the user how he/she is feeling but the data can also be used for customized settings such as seat and mirror positions for alternate drivers. The rear seats aren’t to normal either, they have glasses-free 3D seatback display touchscreens.
“At Mitsubishi Electric, we suggest individual technologies to all kinds of car makers,” said Kiyoshi Matsutani, manager of Mitsubishi Electric’s Automotive Electronics Development Center. “But unless we show how these technologies can actually be used, manufacturers don’t have a clear image of them, or understand what level of performance they’ve reached. So we suggest specifically how technologies can be used, by enabling people to experience those technologies for themselves.”
I think this is a very cool invention even despite the wait ,which is about ten years, this technology is worth waiting for. Looking at what is coming into play in the past few years, looks like the future is coming sooner that we expected.
Consumers: they will be very satisfied and have some very futuristic technology on their hands, lets just hope that they will know how to use it
Investors: they wil also be quite happy due to the attraction and attention the product is getting
1) Would you get this car if it was available to you?
2) Do you think that other companies will try to copy this technology?
