Want to change the way your car looks just by pressing a button? Well, you could probably do so in near future, as Toyota has unveiled a futuristic concept car which promises that and much more.
The Japanese car manufacturer uncovered the new Toyota Fun-Vii, which is designed to look and feel like a smartphone on wheels, at the Toyota amusement park facility Monday.
The slim 13-foot electric model will be displayed to the public at the Tokyo Motor Show to be held this weekend, abcnews.com reported.
The Fun-Vii, which stands for vehicle interactive Internet, is like a personal computer with a body shell made of touch-screen panels. The external display can be adjusted to modify the car's color as well as display motion video and a user interface.
In addition to customizing the car's appearance, drivers can also connect to the Web. Other features include speech controls for a convenient driving experience. It even greets the driver upon recognition.
A car must appeal to our emotions. If it's not fun, it's not a car, said Toyota President Akio Toyoda.
The company said it is a concept vehicle and there is no guarantee it will ever see production. But the technologies used in it could be incorporated into future designs.
