Audi has unveiled an electric luxury SUV concept vehicle that uses augmented reality glasses and can double as a small pickup truck, signaling potential future technologies for the Volkswagen luxury brand. The rear glass of the “Activesphere” vehicle can slide forward, opening the flatbed trunk of the SUV and creating an open-air space for hauling objects. Audi's concept vehicles are used to gauge customer interest or show the future direction of a vehicle or brand, but are not meant to be sold to consumers. The augmented reality glasses are used to view the gauges, controls and other elements that would typically be displayed via screens. Audi emphasized that it has no plans to make its own augmented reality glasses, instead, it would work with partners to integrate the technology with the vehicle.
