The German automaker BMW, in introducing its new “Light Visionary Model” prototype – which it dubs GINA (Geometry and Functions “N” Adaptions”) – writes this: “The key to affecting the development of tomorrow’s mobility lies in our readiness to challenge what is established and in the ability to present new options.”

I encourage you to watch the short video below. Notice how the doors and hoods no longer open – they fold and zip open – and how the lights do open but they “blink” open (much like the human eye), and I think you’ll agree that BMW’s innovative thinking could be providing us a glimpse into the future of what automobiles might look and feel like.
