아직 프로토 타입이지만, 안경을 사기 위해 미니를 사야하는 걸까?
in this exclusive video interview, Jörg Preißinger of BMW Group Research and Technology explains how the prototype augmented-reality glasses his team have developed can make the solid parts of a car appear transparent.
MINI Augmented Vision, which was unveiled at the Auto Shanghai 2015 motor show this week, is a research project developed by BMW Group Research and Technology looking at how augmented-reality eyewear could make driving safer and more convenient in future.

"One visionary use case we present is to look through the hard body parts of the car," says Preißinger in the movie, which was filmed at BMW's research and development centre in Munich. "Basically, the glasses make the car transparent. You have cameras outside the car that film and transfer the video into the glasses."
The prototype augmented-reality headset, which visitors to Auto Shanghai 2015 can experience at MINI's interactive demo, aims to improve safety by eliminating blind spots, as well as helping drivers with everyday tasks such as parking.
The glasses can also overlay more traditional digital information over the real world, such as speed limits and turn-by-turn navigation.
