From Tokyo Nissan make reciprocal of share natives , For Millennials who are more interested in technology than cars, Nissan is showing a rolling box of digital goodies called Teatro for Dayz at the Tokyo Motor Show.
Nissan doesn’t say much about its engine, horsepower or acceleration times. Rather, it says this is a car for “digital natives” or “share natives” who would rather stare transfixed at their smartphone screens or play video games with friends than pay attention to the passing scenery.
It’s the latest attempt to incorporate video screens and other entertainment devices into a car.
The plain white interior is deceiving. With the few pushes of a button, it all can turn into video screens. Yes, the seats look hard and boring. But they, too, can be lit up — allowing you to change the color and style. What to sit on a seat that looks like green growing grass or 1970s naugahyde? It’s all possible.
The same goes for the dashboard. It, too, is laced with video screens that aren’t apparent at first glance.
“The interior can be visually altered according to one’s mood, for playing games, and in the blink of an eye to surprise friends,” says Executive Design Director Satoshi Tai in a statement. “What Teatro for Dayz is, how it’s used, and what it could become are all up to the share native’s imagination.”
To make the screens possible, there are few knobs and controls. Voice and motion sensors control the air conditioning and audio systems. When you’re ready to drive somewhere, all the displays have navigation data and driving information.
