This Concept-i has a body screen that displays various information of conduct, including cars that will follow the Concept-i on the road, it allows especially make this car fun and, in a way, more human. This worries can also be found on the inside where the artificial intelligence of a car materializes not with the scary red eye of HAL in 2001 the Space Odyssey, but a white eye leaping, eminently fun and playful. By making the autonomous car, car manufacturers will allow the Millenials to continue to use their digital devices during their journeys without having to drive. With the gamification and artificial intelligence, maybe they will learn to love the car again.
