Updated : 2019-01-09 19:10:26

Every year at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, we get a glimpse of what vehicles may be — and what they could do.

At CES Audi is showing a new entertainment format, which it says will transform a vehicle into a "special movie theater experience." For now, the system is designed to work only when the vehicle is stationary, but Audi imagines a world in which the car is so good at driving itself that its passengers will need some amusement to pass the time.
