For the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017 in Las Vegas, BMW prepared a visually very interesting glimpse into the interior of the future. Debuting at the show is BMW HoloActive Touch system - an interface between the driver and vehicle that looks like a virtual touchscreen, while this is in fact a hologram, a free-floating display that can be controlled with finger gestures. This new technology confirms the commands in the same way as if the driver was physically touching the screen. 

With the HoloActive Touch System, which we'll be introduced with the BMW i Inside Future concept, BMW plans to merge the advantages of BMW Head-Up Display, BMW gesture control and real, direct touchscreen operation. Furthermore, the system will feature additional functions, making it the first ever interface that is capable of controlling the vehicle without any physical contact between the driver and materials in the car. At the same time, it will keep the visible and tangible driver-vehicle interaction, as known from conventional touchscreens.
