Well this certainly looks like something from a sci-fi superhero movie!
Jaguar Land Rover recently unveiled their concept for a virtual reality windscreen to be fitted in your actual car. Given you drive a Jaguar or Land Rover, of course. The idea revolves around a type of augmented reality, implemented in the windscreen of your car. And while it might sound a little strange (and dangerous, let’s be honest) it does have some pretty cool features.
The windscreen is,as they call it, an interactive display that offers the drivers various features while on the road.
One of the best features of the windscreen, is its ability to provide you, as the driver, with virtual racing lines that change colour. The colours change in order to show you the best braking positions, mostly on hard, steep curves or bends on the road. (more…)
There has been much talk about Land Rover’s new concept vehicle, the Discovery Vision. The new car in Land Rover’s Discovery line, has a definite futuristic feel, and is also the official partner of Sir Richard Branson’s new Virgin Galactic space travel program.
The new model was unveiled ahead of the New York Auto Show, which takes place from the 18th to the 27th of April, at a special event held aboard the USS Intrepid in the Big Apple.
Just to add a bit of glamour and dramatics – and to tie in with the modern and futuristic feel of the Vision – the actual Virgin Galactic spaceship served as a (scene stealing) backdrop for the event.
Simply put, the Vision concept is stunning. Not that we would expect anything less from Land Rover. (more…)
The floor in Geneva is filled with beauties. Land Rover LRX Concept is the company’s newest “improved version” that has some exceptional specs. First of all the 2.0L turbo diesel engine that does 60mpg (or 4.7 liters for every 100km) with CO2 emission levels at 120g/km.
Another thing that got my attention is the Electric Rear Axle Drive (ERAD) technology that would allow LRX to use electric drive alone at lower speeds while retaining full (even improved) sport utility ability in tough conditions. The looks are great as you can probably see. The top roof and the underbody are made of lightweight materials which not only makes it lighter but also safer.
This is still a concept but showing it in Geneva could mean that with such specs it should go into production sooner than we think. The black it has in the pictures, is so handsome.
