Warner Bros. and Intel are partnering to bring immersive Virtual Reality experiences to the inside of your car, using self-driving automobiles and advances in VR technology. The multimedia conglomerate and tech giant will produce a test car showing what could be possible with automated cars.
The VR concept car will feature entertainment such as simulated routes, and stories that are told through a commute.
"Warner Bros. and Intel imagine significant possibilities inside the AV space. Not only do we see passengers consuming content ranging from movies and television programming, we imagine riders enjoying immersive experiences never seen before, courtesy of in-cabin virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) innovations," said Intel CEO Brian Krzanich in a statement. "For example, a fan of the superhero Batman could enjoy riding in the Batmobile through the streets of Gotham City, while AR capabilities render the car a literal lens to the outside world, enabling passengers to view advertising and other discovery experiences."
There is no timeframe for when this kind of in-car VR technology could be made available to the public.
