Autonomous driving is set to become reality in the near future

Traveling in business-class style redefined with innovative Harman infotainment concept.

We may have seen some amazing concept cars from Rinspeed in the past, but at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show next month, Rinspeed presents the “XchangE” study to the public in a world premiere. The XchangE turns the Tesla Model S into a “living room on wheels.” The autonomous vehicle will not only drive itself, but is equipped with a 32-inch 4k monitor and reclining seats to make you feel like you’re cruising around in a private jet rather than a four-door sedan.

The intense luxury doesn’t stop at the television. A built-in espresso machine keeps you powered up for the ride, and If you’re traveling for work rather than play, the vehicle’s “Business-to-Car” platform ensures you not only have access to all the web services you need, but are surfing safely. Perhaps the most absurd addition to the vehicle is “the world’s arguably most expensive watch winder,” a $44k Patravi TravelTec wristwatch encased in a transparent globe above the car’s steering column. When the car is stationary, the globe uses the Tesla’s electric engine to wind the stationary watch. It’s all just a concept now, but it’s one we can’t wait to hit the streets in.
