99 Days Building A Mercedes Vision AVTR For Me #car #mercedes


by Kivi



Mercedes-Benz Vision AVTR is a concept car by Mercedes-Benz inspired by the 2009 movie Avatar by James Cameron.
The acronym AVTR stands for advance vision transportation, but it is also a reference to the 2009 film Avatar. [4]
The entire rear end of the AVTR is covered in 33 discrete scales, so called “bionic flaps” used to communicate with people outside the car. It also has special spherical wheels that were inspired by the “seeds of the Tree of Souls” from 2009’s Avatar. These wheels can rotate so that the AVTR can move sideways, or even diagonally. [2]
The car does not have a steering wheel. Since this futuristic car is autonomous, there is no need for one. Instead, passengers interact with the car through an oval-shaped controller that accordions up and out of the center console to meet a driver’s hand. Once a hand is on the controller, it and the seats can vibrate along with the pace of driver’s breathing and heart rate. Once passengers start moving in the AVTR car, the sweeping display in front of them can light up with 3D graphics of Pandora, the fictional world from the 2009 film Avatar. Back-seat riders have access to learning-oriented gaming and a “child-friendly augmented reality experience.” [2]
The concept car is “powered” by graphene-based organic battery cells that do not require rare earth minerals, which may one day be compostable, and the interior is made from recycled plastics and vegan leather. [2]
Mercedes-Benz unveiled car in January 2020 at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show. [3] Avatar director James Cameron collaborated with Mercedes to create the car, and took the stage alongside it. “I see a future where we continue to co-evolve with our technology… we will merge, we will absorb it and it will become such a natural part of our lives,” said Cameron.
