It is always good to hear, no pun intended, when trends, technologies, and designs from the mobile market seep into other industries to help make products become more approachable or even desirable and vice versa. Such an exchange of gifts is perhaps most visible in the audio market where Bluetooth earphones and hearings aids inform each other's development from time to time.

The Mercedes-Benz VISION AVTR is more than just an Avatar-inspired concept

In many ways, Mercedes-Benz's new VISION AVTR concept car is everything we've come to expect from automakers at CES 2020: exaggerated style wrapped in an ambitious message, in this particular case James Cameron’s epic “Avatar” movie.
