HOLOGRAMS INSTEAD OF SIRI OR ALEXA
FAW has launched its new SUV with the next level of Apple’s Siri and Android’s Alexa — on-board holograms that project “driver assistants” on the dashboard.
The holograms are part of FAW’s new Pentium SUV, the “T77” which Chinese buyers can already order.
In the video, a rotating hologram projector on the car’s dashboard projects characters that “engage” with drivers.
The first character is a typical anime style girl with blonde hair and a short skirt. The second is a small boy playing basketball and the third is a white robot.
FAW say the hologram assistants will interact and entertain drivers.
The car was first shown to consumers at a plant in the city of Changchun, capital of China’s Jilin province.
Like Siri and Alexa, the holograms respond to voice commands and will be able to carry out actions such as lowering the windows, turning on the windscreen wipers and 41 other capabilities.
Drivers will be able to choose which character they want to act as their driver assistant. — WR.
One of three driver “assistants” projected as holograms in the new FAW SUV’s dashboard is a miniskirted anime character.
