Pioneer recently showed off a new technology called its “Floating Vision” display – the glasses-free 3D display that lets users interact with the floating images, offering a totally brand new input experience. The display, which Pioneer plans to use in their future car navigation systems, looks like a whole bunch load of fun to play around with – users can push icons onto a map to make different locations show up etc. and so on.
Whether or not this Floating Vision display will turn out to be just a novelty (while it does look very cool, it doesn’t really increase the usefulness of the navigation system at this point in time) – it’s still too early to tell. But something tells me it’s going to be more suitable for arcade games or information kiosks for the public to use. Putting it in a car navigation system seems a little unnecessary to me. Watch the video for yourself and let us know what you think:
