Sebastien Gier talks us through his project where your car window lets you manipulate what you see outside, take pictures, bookmark and more.    

Sebastian is a strategic designer who loves to design brand-shaping positive human experiences that unite physical and digital worlds. Currently designing mobility futures at BMW.

Project: Xplore, the window of the future

For Sebastien Gier, a graduate of the The Umeå Institute of Design in Sweden, the car window presents interesting possibilities when looking at the future of mobility. In his project Xplore Window Into The Future the car is not only a way to see outside, but to have different experience like going back and forward in time.

The window can also zoom into your views but also work as a way of bookmarking what you see. The window then is a way of curating your memories on the trip and sharing them with your friends and family.

He wanted to make people exprience what it would be like to manipulate your surroundings to make experiences like driving through traffic (or in a foreign country) more interesting.
