At the recent Consumer Electronics Show, Mercedes-Benz unveiled a futuristic concept car called Vision AVTR designed after the 2009 James Cameron movie “Avatar” (Weiss, 2020). The car has an interesting aesthetic with scales and no doors. One extremely unique feature is that it does not have a steering wheel. Instead it would use biometric detection, which would enable users to place their hands on a control panel so that their hands become part of the steering. This allows them to lift their hand to pull up a menu of car functions. It can monitor their heart rate and breath as well to identify drivers. Another incredible feature is that it is able to move 30 degrees sideways, unlike traditional cars. Finally the car boasts completely recyclable graphene batteries, which are highly sustainable. While it is just a concept car, with no plans revealed on the car’s development or even if this type of car plans to be released to the general public down the line, I find it fascinating that companies are already envisioning how biometric detection could become incorporated to remove physical features that are currently staples of a car.
