VW Augmented Reality


Speaking to Autocar, Volkswagen design boss Klaus Bischoff confirmed that the company was hard at work making the I.D.'s "augmented HUD" a reality when the car reaches production in 2020. Normally, we don't get too excited about HUDs, because in their current state, they're little more than gimmicks. But the I.D.'s promises some game-changing features.

"Augmented" here refers to augmented reality, where projections are used to display information as if it's 50 feet ahead of the driver. With this technology, the I.D. will be able to project street directions in a way that looks like they're on the actual roads, as shown above.
