Autonomous technology will sooner or later open a new chapter in interior design. When that happens, whether in a few years or a few decades, General Motors predicts that travelers will be able to gamble on the go.
General Motors Design published a sketch on his official Instagram account This shows what a car cabin could look like when designers no longer have to pack it around a steering wheel and pedals. Instead of a dashboard as we know it, the nameless concept gets a spacious parcel shelf directly under a widescreen that is low enough for occupants to look over it. There is a portrait-oriented touchscreen between the two seats.
The Chevrolet designer Darby Jean Barber wrote the design. It’s a layout that allows one of the passengers to play a video game while the other is looking at the landscape or reading a book. Of course, it’s not too far-fetched to speculate that the screen could be split vertically, allowing one occupant to blow up alien spaceships while the other watches a romantic comedy, possibly using an in-car video streaming platform like Amazon Fire TV for Auto.
We are not there yet. In-car gaming is slowly spreading across the industry, some of which are virtual reality based and are very cool. However, the software is only activated when used by the occupants in the back seats or when the transmission is in the park. You won’t be able to play Mario kart from the driver’s seat while driving at 75 mph for some time.
