    Holoride will allow passengers sitting at the rear to enjoy an immersive virtual reality entertainment experience. A pair of virtual reality glasses will be available for backseat passengers to keep them engaged in various media formats including games, films, and other interactive content. The Holoride headset wirelessly connects to the Audi vehicle by way of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).

    In addition, Audi says that Holoride-capable cars will have a feature that allows the virtual content played on the virtual reality accessory to adapt to the vehicle’s driving movements.

    “For example, if the car is taking a right turn, the spaceship in the imaginary world will also fly to the right. If the car accelerates, the spaceship speeds up too,” Audi said in a press release.

    “In the future, the progressive automation of travel by car will not only make new forms of entertainment possible while driving — it will also open up increased opportunities to learn and work on the road. When drivers also no longer have to concentrate on driving in the future, they can turn their attention to other things — work, reading, watching films, or gaming. The motion-synchronized voyage through virtual worlds with Holoride may also be able to reduce the common phenomenon of motion sickness often experienced by passengers reading a book or enjoying audiovisual media on electronic devices such as tablets,” read the press release.
