At CES 2017, WayRay showcased the world’s first holographic AR infotainment system for self-driving cars. The system was featured in the Oasis concept car built by Swiss car manufacturer and automotive designer Rinspeed.
The AR infotainment system in the Oasis let the “driver” benefit from useful route information while the “passenger” was kept entertained by social media updates and interesting location alerts. Depending on the driving mode (autonomous or manual), different types of information were visible to the person in the car via the WayRay AR interface.

The Rinspeed car demonstrated WayRay's approach to around-the-car media content, showing the company's vision for implementing AR in the development of new infotainment systems for transportation and everyday life.
