    Sony Vision-S Concept 2020-

    Press Release-

    Sony's efforts in the area of mobility - such as pursuing safety, reliability, comfort and entertainment - are being positioned as a new initiative, named "VISION-S." The first prototype vehicle to result from "VISION-S" will be showcased at the Sony booth. This prototype incorporates Sony's imaging and sensing technologies, as well as on-board software regulated using Sony's AI, telecommunication and cloud technologies, in order to continuously update and evolve its features.
    A total of 33 sensors including CMOS image sensors and ToF sensors are embedded within the vehicle, in order to detect and recognize people and objects inside and outside the car, and provide highly advanced driving support. Sony's "360 Reality Audio" provides a deep and immersive audio experience through speakers built into each seat to encapsulate passengers in sound. The front seats face a panoramic screen on which rich and diverse content can be enjoyed through an intuitive user interface. Sony will continue to combine its advanced technologies to deliver greater safety and reliability, while also striving to inspire new emotion through revolutionary in-car entertainment experiences.

    It's actually a pretty looking car and I think if both Apple and Sony had a production car now, I'd probably buy one from Sony first.

    Call it my Playstation loyalty.

    And I only found 1 high res shot.

    It is handsome. However in these days of overdesigned cars it is not difficult for something a little bit more restrained to be pleasing.

    Something tells me that it is not going to be a driver's car though...

    Yes, but think: you can play a nice metagame of GT2 inside. Driving a Daihatsu Move CX against similarly-weak opponents around a track, while your Sony inches automatically through a traffic jam.
    "Kimi, can you improve on your [race] finish?"
    "No. My Finnish is fine; I am from Finland. Do you have any water?"

    I dunno, call it my gamer personality, but I can see you being able to program in set ups to emulate cars. Want a FF hot hatch one day and drive a soft luxury sedan in the afternoon? Sure!

    Want a 4WD rally car? Sure!

    That would be fun.

    Call me cynical, but if Apple decided to build a car, they'll try to make a car without Windows.


    Get it?

    I already have one of these. It's called home.

    I agree entirely: I would argue that my home is a more-effective means of transportation than just about any car made by a "tech" company.

    Exactly, keep carburettors and perforated cards separately.

    On the other hand, if it is just device, does form cease to be relevant?
