It has been a little while since we’ve had a Life In 360° revolving around the automobile industry or even car-based sport but this morning’s 360 degree video focuses on a virtual test drive conducted by BMW.
The German car manufacturer has turned to 360 degrees in order to promote the all-new BMW X3. Fair enough. You might be imagining then that we’re about to take a trip through Berlin perhaps to see the sights of the city. Maybe we’ll see how fast we can go by taking a journey down the autobahn. (If Kraftwerk has taught me anything it’s that such an experience would be “fun fun fun”.) Maybe they have planned for us a trip around the fast twisting circuit that is the famous German racecourse the Nürburgring?
I can confirm to you it is none of those things. “This car stands for pure joy, wherever your passion leads you.” Says BMW on the X3, so in order to prove that theory you’ll be taking it for your virtual testdrive on the surface of Mars, as you do. Beyond the Martian environment the video shows off several of the features of the car. Including how the Personal Co-Pilot works, adaptive headlights, heads-up display and semi-autonomous driving as well as anti-crash technologies.
You can see the video below. VRFocus will be back for our third weekly visit to Li360 on Friday at the usual time.
