The entire auto industry is changing rapidly and there are a lot of outstanding futuristic concepts that are still waiting for the final production. Toyota’s FV2 concept has made its European debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. FV2 is designed to capture the spirit of Toyota’s fun-to-drive philosophy.
The FV2 – which stands for “Fun Vehicle 2″ has a “mood-based” mirrored exterior that constantly moves and shifts colours and patterns. By incorporating technology from the Toyota Heart Project, a research programme that enhances communication between humans and artificial intelligence, the FV2 has been designed to connect to the driver emotionally. “A car must appeal to our emotions. If it’s not fun, it’s not a car,” Toyota president Akio said.
This fantastic futuristic car accumulated driving history to suggest destinations and driving skill information to assist the user.
The Toytoa FV2 is operated by the driving shifting his or her body to intuitively move the vehicle forward and back, left and right. The driver stands while in the vehicle, and shifts his weight to steer. Actually it’s like riding a horse. The FV2 comes with three wheels, and no steering wheel. And once inside, the driver operate the car without lifting a finger — relying on speech-controlled directions instead.
It’s hard to imagine something like this on the street, but it would be definitely more than fun to drive this extremely unusual car.
