Forget LCD displays, the Lexus UX concept has hologram orbs

Two weeks ago, Lexus revealed the UX concept for the Paris Motor Expose. The company only showed one photo of the outward, but did give a generic description of the interior, saying it would take “imaginative technologies for an immersive driver happening.” Now we know what that means: holograms!

Yes, Lexus has done upon the only thing that can impress in this sphere of high-resolution automotive displays – it brought instruments and infotainment into the third dimension. In the organize it has somewhat reimagined the way occupants interact with the car as wonderfully. We’re guessing the name UX, which stands for owner experience in the tech world, was intentional.

The generous crystal-shaped box in the center console stands out unhesitatingly. The company says the box will display mood control and infotainment options in full 3D for the driver and fare. The instrument cluster gets the hologram treatment as famously with an orb floating in the middle and the ability to expose both analog and digital information. No consultation on whether a small, blue Princess Leia resolution appear in the console asking for help.

The UX’s up-country has a few other nifty surprises. The windows are electrochromic, so they can be darkened as needed (correspond to tech is already in use on some car roofs). The fare side of the dashboard has a large, finned reverberate bar that can be removed. We’re not entirely sure the reasonable behind that feature, but we suppose it would be satisfactory as a stereo for a picnic or a day at the beach. To cap things off, Lexus included the concept car staples of apply-sensitive buttons and side-view mirror cameras.

As for when you’ll see hologram displays in tomorrow’s Lexus models, we have no idea but wouldn’t trust on them coming anytime soon. We be struck by a more optimistic view of the Lexus UX concept itself. With crossovers as all the rage as ever, we expect to see an attractive production beau id with these bulging fenders and a steeply raked windshield in a year or so.
