Future Bentleys could feature in-car VR Personal Assistant
United Kingdom-based Bentley Motors has released an extremely interesting conceptualization of one of its luxury models featuring a virtual reality (VR) personal assistant in the back of one of the car. The design could provide rear seat passengers with a holographic assistant, combining VR with holographic projections.
The Model EXP10 Speed 6 already has garnered multiple awards representing the company’s most successful concept cars.

Bentley’s Director of Design Stefan Sielaff told the UK’s Mirror Online that these type of technologies will be integrated into car interiors in the future.
“In the future our cars will, of course, feature yet-to-be-invented connectivity and technologies – perhaps a virtual butler, for example – that enhance the lives of our luxury millennial customers, and I strongly believe that how these technologies are integrated into the cabin will become ever more important.”
Indeed, as VR technology rolls out and becomes more commonplace and embedded in homes, videogames, workplaces, it only makes sense that it will make its way into automotive technology. We are just at the cusp of a myriad of heretofore unthinkable applications for this technology.
“This is the year VR will become commonplace everywhere,” says CEO Nicolas Burtey of VR firm VideoStitch. The industry could also be looking at 81,000% growth over the next several years.
