hyperscreen


Car screens didn't just go big at CES. They went 3D, with game-worthy graphics.

The upcoming Cadillac Lyriq SUV is the first electric car for the Cadillac car brand, but it's the reimagined dashboard display spanning 33 inches across that attracts the most attention. Mercedes-Benz also has a massive 56-inch Hyperscreen that will be available soon in its first EV. These car screens and others introduced at the annual tech show CES feature a new user interface that looks more like a well-rendered video game than an infotainment display to turn up the heat or play a podcast. Past CES shows used to wow with announcements about bigger and bigger dashboard screens, but now it's about what's on them. The Lyriq's 33-inch LED display stands out on its own, but its graphics feel almost too sharp for a screen stuck in a car.

As Wednesday draws to a close, so does a grand social experiment: the first-ever online-only CES. In the end, the experience was invariably different. We particularly missed being able to wander The Sands and have learn about smaller, up-and-coming startups. And if seeing is believing, the oddest entries at the show remained locked behind our computer screen, with no chance of getting hands-on time. And yet, we were kept busy this week. Most of the usual tech giants had news to share, and many of those were able to show us their wares in person, ahead of the three-day gadget extravaganza.


Mercedes-Benz unveils Hyperscreen, a sprawling 56-inch car dashboard

Mashable

Ahead of CES, Mercedes-Benz unveiled its enormous Hyperscreen. It's a 56-inch curved touchscreen that takes up almost the entire width of a car dashboard, soon to debut in the company's EQS electric sedan, coming later this year. Equipped with an OLED screen and voice-controlled MBUX (Mercedes-Benz user experience) software that learns and adapts to driver behavior, the Hyperscreen is an optional addition to the company's forthcoming electric vehicles. It's like a digital assistant that makes suggestions for vehicle functions and entertainment choices using artificial intelligence. "It's based on customer need," said Mercedes-Benz AG executive Sajjad Khan on a Thursday press call.
