Mercedes-Benz revealed a new technologically advanced car that can be controlled by someone’s thoughts.
Called Vision AVTR, the car that is still in the developmental stage was put on display earlier this week in Germany at the IAA Mobility 2021 event.
It runs on electricity and your brain using a technological interface called Brain Computer Interface (BCI).

Mercedes hopes that drivers will use BCI technology to control the radio show channels or change the lights’ color inside the car by thinking about it.
“BCI technology works completely independently of speech and touch. This opens up revolutionary possibilities for intuitive interaction with the vehicle,” said Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz AG, in a press release.
