The Toyota Fun-Vii concept shows how they want that car to work in… THE FUTURE!
Meet the Toyota Fun-Vii, a futuristic concept car that Toyota’s president described as “a smartphone on four-wheels.”
Toyota’s concept of the future is a whimsical one, where people would get out of their cars and use the giant touch screen to do some internetting.
Ignoring all of the obvious impracticalities, the Fun-Vii is beautiful and it isn’t like any concept car (or display) ever seen — the interior and exterior are covered with a display panel, and the door is touch sensitive. Navigation information displays directly on the interior, and Toyota says the images both inside and out can be changed with a simple download. The software behind the controls can be updated through a network connection, which also links to other vehicles for detecting cars in the blind spots or finding friends driving nearby. Some of the features will even be accessible through a smartphone.
