If you look at the general trend shown for the future of in-car entertainment it seems we are moving towards a more holistic system that caters for entertainment and comfort, while not compromising on driver and passenger safety. Automation and one-touch-control are also heavily focussed on, with our favourite futuristic in-car entertainment setup currently coming from the Mercedes-Benz F 015.

This luxury research car takes comfort to a whole new level allowing passengers to rotate their lounge chairs to face each other or stare out the window. Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Dr Dieter Zetsche emphasizes that vehicles are evolving passed the point of only being a way to get around, but will “ultimately become mobile living spaces. Anyone who focuses solely on the technology has not yet grasped how autonomous driving will change our society“.
