Nissan’s freaky AR concept would project friends in your car, make it look sunny outside

The company wants to project the “invisible” virtual world onto car windshields and windows. The tech isn’t ready now. Instead, through a VR headset next week at CES in Las Vegas, Nissan will show off its concept to demonstrate what’s possible in future cars, especially self-driving vehicles.

Using information from sensors and cameras inside and outside of the car, paired with data stored in the cloud, the I2V tech shows a "mixed reality" world: some of it is really there but some of it is augmented reality (AR).

Another freaky concept? Interior cameras monitoring the real people inside the vehicle. Ideally, it would sense when you need a coffee break or are lost and need directions, but there are definitely privacy issues.
