Description
Disney and Audi partnered up to create a Holoride system that will be available in several different models of cars. Using an Oculus Rift, passengers can play games that incorporate the movement they experience while in a car to add realism to the experience. The companies believe that when autonomous vehicles become the new standard, drivers will want something to do while sitting behind the wheel.

The first game announced is called Marvel's Avengers: Rocket's Rescue Run, which has both Iron Man and Rocket Raccoon teaming up to fight Thanos.

The article also explores other futuristic vehicle concepts exhibited at CES 2019, such as BMW's smart assistant, Bell's Nexus electric 'air taxi', and Hyundai's 'Elevate' emergency response vehicle that can climb over obstacles.
