Mini Augmented Vision Eyewear

A MINI Augmented Vision Eyewear concept was recently unveiled at the 2015 Auto Shanghai Show, and it’s quite an interesting design, to say the least. The prototype was created with the help of Designworks with the aid from many Qualcomm companies. But what does the Mini Augmented Vision Eyewear actually do?

For one, the headwear displays relevant information in the driver’s direct field of vision, right above the steering wheel, but does so in way that doesn’t block other drivers on the road. It displays important information like destination navigation, miles traveled and aides with parking. In fact, it will highlight places such as open parking spaces so that you can easily find a spot. But, the MINI concept doesn’t stop with just driving assistance. The concept will also have an X-ray mode of sorts to give users a virtual perspective through parts of their vehicle, such as the A-pillars and doors, that otherwise can’t be seen with the naked eye. Of course, you’d have to be driving a MINI car for things to work just so. Check out the video below.
