Mercedes-Benz revealed the cool and bizarre new car inspired by James Cameron’s Avatar. They are calling it VISON AVTR, and today we have a promo video for you check out and see how awesome and weird this car really is. They really wanted to do something unique and futuristic with this new automobile. It has no steering wheel! It’s completely controlled through biometrics!
Check out the description:
The Mercedes-Benz VISION AVTR inspired by the Avatar sequels is the result of a holistic design concept revolving around the intuitive driving experience. …The name of the groundbreaking concept vehicle stands not only for the close collaboration in developing the show car together with the AVATAR team but also for ADVANCED VEHICLE TRANSFORMATION. This concept vehicle embodies the vision of Mercedes-Benz designers, engineers and trend researchers for mobility in the distant future.
The car is said to have “inside out” design, and all the bells and whistles are made from sustainable materials, real-time 3D graphics and an organic battery made from recycled materials “completely clean of rare earth and metals”. It also comes with what are called “bionic flaps,” which interact with the driver.
They can communicate with the driver and through the driver with their outside world by means of naturally flowing movements in subtle gestures. Due to the possibility to drive the front and rear axles in the same or opposite direction, the VISION AVTR can move sideways by approximately 30 degrees, in contrast to conventional vehicles. The so-called “crab movement” gives the concept vehicle an animal-like appearance also for its motions.
This is certainly an unusual car, and you can watch the promo video below to see it in action.
