Sony Brings Fortnite to the Car Bumper

Sony brings Fortnite to the car bumper. The tech company recently shared a new video showing details of some features in its upcoming Afeela EV, and this is inclusive of the ability to effectively turn your bumper into a mobile billboard for both games and movies.

Both Sony and Honda’s in-development Afeela EV will allow you to display messages and images on its front bumper, as per a new video about the car, and this is also including the ability to advertise video games.

You can get to see the screen-ified bumper or the “Media Bar” rather starting at 3:17 in the shared video. The video in question does show some more sensible utilization of the Media Bar, such as displaying the name of the car, a red warning sign, or even a birthday greeting.

But the video as you should know also shows how you can effectively display logos for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, Fortnite, as well as Horizon Forbidden West Complete Edition, which is absolutely ridiculous.

Other Weird and Wild Introductions You Should Know About the Afeela EV

That is however not the only weird and may be potentially distracting and dangerous tech thing that is packed into the screen-filled car. Another feature, dubbed “Monster View,” overlays virtual kaiju monsters on the parts of the road that you can see on your dashboard screen and it effectively encourages the driver to “catch the monsters that have escaped.”

It seems very much like a bad idea to encourage people to chase virtual beasts that only they can see while they are navigating busy city streets. You can also watch movies on the giant screen on the dashboard of the car apparently, which seems very much like an even worse idea!

This Is a Prototype

You should really see the full video for yourself in a bid to get an idea of just what Sony and Honda are thinking for the Afeela. (There are a couple of other new videos regarding the car, too.) That being said, I should note that the Afeela EV is described as a “prototype” in the YouTube description of the video, so anything revealed in the video could change just before this car makes its way to market, which Sony and Honda revealed in the previous year would happen in North America in the year 2026.
