Virtual Drive

Autos with augmented reality features enhance driving
Implications - The benefits and advantages of using augmented reality have been shown in both technological innovation and marketing, so it comes as no surprise that many car brands are beginning to infuse the technology into their latest models -- for example, Mercedes' gesture-controlled DICE dashboard. At the same time, tech designers are also developing special AR driving tools, such as enhanced GPS applications and virtual games for children. These augmented reality innovations enhance the driving experience, making commutes a safer and more pleasant experience for everyone, from the driver to those sitting in the backseat.
