Rev up your excitement, as we take a thrilling ride through the futuristic landscape of CES 2024 with the Sony Honda Mobility’s latest AFEELA electric car prototype. And guess what? They’ve ditched the traditional steering wheel for a PlayStation 5 controller – because why not add a gaming twist to your commute?
This electric marvel, first showcased at CES 2023, is now gearing up for mass production. Packed with cutting-edge technology, the AFEELA boasts artificial intelligence capabilities, thanks to a collaboration between Sony Honda Mobility, Epic Games, Microsoft, and Polyphony Digital.
Hold onto your seats as Epic Games unleashes the power of Unreal Engine to create an augmented reality experience within AFEELA’s infotainment and navigation system. Picture this: a video-game-like GPS that transforms your mundane drive into a gaming adventure. The road maps come to life, making you feel like you’re in control of a high-tech, four-wheeled console.
But the excitement doesn’t stop there. Sony Honda Mobility, in cahoots with Epic Games, introduces 3D mapping technology that turns your drive into a visual extravaganza. Imagine monsters popping out of buildings or under-the-sea effects appearing on your driving screen. And if that’s not enough, Microsoft steps in to provide an AI assistant with a conversational personal touch, making your car feel like a true companion.
In the cabin, large infotainment screens for all, noise-canceling interiors reminiscent of soundproof cinemas, and Sony’s spatial audio create an immersive experience that will leave you craving for more.
But wait, there’s more – AFEELA comes with autonomous parking, courtesy of ultra-wideband sensors and cameras. The car greets you with a light show, opens its doors automatically, and runs an authentication process to ensure you’re the rightful owner. Once inside, AFEELA’s sensors and cameras take charge, providing driving assistance and monitoring traffic conditions.
Not just a tech marvel, AFEELA also lets you customize your driving experience with themed cabins. Choose a theme, and watch as the lighting, sound, and display adapt to match your mood.
Exterior-wise, the LED dipslide, known as AFEELA’s Media Bar, acts as an external information display. It can warn others about your proximity, display battery percentage, and even play animated sequences – turning your car into a moving billboard.
For the tech enthusiasts, AFEELA packs a punch with a front and rear electric motor power of 180 kilowatts and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery capacity of 91 kilowatts. The inviting interior, adorned with aluminum and glass seats, creates a luxurious space for both driver and passengers.
As AFEELA speeds toward mass production, the only thing left to announce is when we’ll get our hands on this futuristic ride. Buckle up, gearheads, the future of electric cars has arrived!
