Flying cars, four-legged walking robots and car windshields that double as movie screens are among the innovations dazzling visitors to the Japan Mobility Show, according to Japan News.
The newspaper said 178 companies — including automakers, NTT Corp., Panasonic Holdings Corp., Sony Group Corp. and Japan Airlines — participated in the Tokyo Future Tour. The tour featured four themes, life, food, play and emergency, and more than 100 different types of mobility, including flying cars and vehicles to provide assistance after a disaster.
Glass maker AGC Inc. demonstrated window glass that allows users to adjust the brightness inside a vehicle by allowing in more or less light. Nippon Sheet Glass Co. previewed technology that enables movies and other images to be displayed on windshields.
The newspaper said, “These innovations aim to make the vehicle interior more comfortable for passengers as autonomous driving becomes more widespread.”
