Hyundai is working on a rollable display

Whether it's remote parking assistance, autonomous driving, or electrification, Hyundai has always been ahead of the competition when it comes to technology. In fact, the latest innovation that the Korean manufacturer is proposing and which could soon be found in a production model seems straight out of a science fiction movie.

 

It's a rolling and adjustable screen, the latest gadget developed by the division that deals with advanced technologies at Hyundai. Mobis has designed a rolling and adjustable screen that can extend up to 30 inches diagonally.

 

An adaptive technology

 

The advantage of such a screen is that it can be adjusted according to how you use the car. When unrolled to a third of its length, it can display basic information about the vehicle. At two-thirds, there's enough space to include navigation and other functions. Finally, the screen can be completely unrolled while your vehicle is charging, allowing you to watch videos in a 16:9 format.

 

This new technology should also allow the Korean manufacturer to reach new horizons in terms of design, or even completely rethink the interior of its cars. Hyundai takes the concept even further and even projects to make this technology accessible in several places inside its vehicles. The screen could be installed on the ceiling, behind a seat, or even directly on a door to make the rear passenger experience even more interesting.

 

Hyundai knows how to be bold when it comes to design. Just look at the IONIQ 5 and IONIQ 6, two radically different but equally impressive vehicles. However, these two have one thing in common and that's their interior design, especially in terms of the dashboard. It must be said that the possibilities for creativity have been considerably reduced with the arrival of large rectangular screens. This is where the new rolling screen technology from the Korean manufacturer becomes interesting as it should give designers more freedom.

 

Once again, Hyundai is revolutionizing the automotive industry and rewriting the rules in its own way. In my opinion, it's only a matter of time before other manufacturers propose something similar. The Korean manufacturer's rolling screen is expected to land on the North American market in the near future, but no date has been mentioned so far. In any case, I'm looking forward to trying out this new technology.
