How can ambient interfaces and innovative materials shape the experience of autonomous mobility?

Approached by Volkswagen Group Future Center Europe to investigate the future of self-driving cars, Studio NAND set out to design new data-driven ambient interfaces for autonomous mobility. Based on extensive research of feasible, long lasting, and controllable material combinations, Studio NAND developed a fully functional prototype – creating a playful, emotional, usable and informative experience in the automobile of the future.

Due to NDA restrictions this documentation only shows a rough overview of the project.
