The automaker touts it as a personal “third living space” where passengers can use eye tracking to communicate with the show car intuitively, like having it order their favorite foods. Put on a pair of VR goggles to enjoy a virtual flight across a spectacular mountain landscape. Plus, all of the technology adapts virtual content to the movements of the vehicle in real time.

Toyota Home Robot TRI
The Toyota Research Institute (TRI) specializes in developing assistive home robots, and currently they’re attempting to teach a general purpose robot how to perform useful human-level tasks in actual homes. To achieve this, the team is teaching the robot using an immersive telepresence system. In other words, there’s a model of the robot that is mirroring what the robot is doing.
