BMW decided to unveil its plans for the future of their interior design direction through the BMW i Inside concept which was shown at the CES 2017 show yesterday.
Just looking at the concept, you would realize this is aimed at a distant future but BMW won’t shy away from showing up with new ideas for their future. The interior in the BMW i Inside concept gives us a glimpse of the latest tech like the HoloActive Touch, gesture and in-car control tech.
BMW says the HoloActive Touch is basically a revolutionary step up from the current iDrive system implemented in vehicles right now. It takes advantage of the current solutions used by BMW; such as Head-Up display and gesture control. The HoloActive Touch introduces a free-floating virtual display that projects right above the center console. The virtual screen can be controlled using finger movements instead of touch.
The interior design also introduces a door-free concept which is rather controversial to say the least. Then you have bookshelves under the seats, enclosed slim front and rear wheels. You may also notice what seems to be grass or some sort of greenery underneath the rear seats, to give the vehicle a sense of nature.
