At this year’s CES, Sony didn’t announce the PlayStation 5. But instead, they went with something much bigger. Like, literally bigger.
The company went ahead and shocked everyone with a concept car instead.
Yep. A literal car. And it’s called the Vision-S.
But don’t get too excited, because this thing won’t actually be available to drive. The Vision-S is basically Sony’s way of showing off all that its technology can do.
A humblebrag, I guess.
For starters, the concept car packs a total of 33 sensors. This includes CMOS and ToF sensors embedded within the car itself. They’re meant to detect both people and objects inside and outside the car, as well as provide advanced driving support.
Additionally, the Vision-S also comes with Sony’s 360 Reality Audio. With speakers and displays built into each seat, the technology is designed to provide a deep, immersive sound. Meanwhile, the front seats face a panoramic screen that displays content.
Other than that, Sony remained pretty vague on any other details. Probably because, again, this thing isn’t actually going into production.
Sony did display the Vision-S front and center on the show floor — but media could only look, and certainly not touch. That also means no one was able to check out the inside, but I can easily say the outside of the car looks sweet.
But if I’m quite honest, I would’ve much rather preferred to look at the PS5. Whatever.
