The integration of technology with automobiles is converging to be more symbiotic in nature as is seen with the BMW i8 Spyder Concept that will unveil this year at CES 2016. Aside from the sculpted good looks, the BMW i8 Spyder Concept vehicle will feature AirTouch technology that would enable drivers to control certain features via gesture rather than pressing a series of buttons or using their voice.

AirTouch within the vehicle is essentially an updated version of the BMW brand's Gesture Control System that's currently found in BMW 7 Series vehicles.

The incorporation of AirTouch within the BMW i8 Spyder Concept would enable drivers to simply press a button and perform a safe gesture in order to keep eyes and concentration on the road.
