The all-new MBUX Hyperscreen was revealed as the future infotainment system of the EQS electric sedan. The large curved screen will stretch almost the entire width of the dashboard.
Mercedes-Benz mentions the “wow” effect of the new high-quality, large-sized, detail-loving MBUX Hyperscreen. It is the next step in screen design and technology and in interaction with the car.
“The MBUX Hyperscreen is both the brain and the nervous system of the car”, says Sajjad Khan, Member of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz AG and CTO.
The OLED technology screen integrates several displays that seem t blend seamlessly. The digital surface also includes analogue air vents. Surrounded by a continuous plastic front frame, it features a visible area painted in Silver Shadow. The lower part features ambient lighting that gives the onlookers the sensation that the Hyperscreen actually floats on the instrument panel.
There will also be a display and operating area for the front passenger of the future EQS electric sedan. Seven different profiles are available for customization with the aid of artificial intelligence.
The so-called Magic Modules of the zero-layer, for example, will supply the user with the top dynamic content from the entire MBUX system and related services. Users can control active massage programs or use the birthday reminder, they can suggest entries for the to-do list or check out various data.
Mercedes-Benz will also showcase the MBUX Hyperscren at the 2021 Consumer Electronics Show. The pandemic imposes several restrictions. Therefore, it will be the first time the technology event will be an exclusively digital event. 2021 CES takes place from January 11th to January 14th.
