The highly three-dimensional feel of the instrumentation is a further example of the radical, deconstruction techniques used in the UX Concept, with the in-and-out flow of the meters - near for air-conditioning, far for navigation - making the cabin space feel larger.
The driver's instrument binnacle houses a transparent globe, floating in the manner of a hologram, in which a combination of analogue and digital information express a functional yet unexpected user interface.
The UX Concept also features the first design execution of a breakthrough seat technology, the Kinetic Seat Concept, designed by Lexus in response to a re-evaluation of the principles of car-seat occupancy.
The latest advanced in-vehicle electrical technologies are also on display in the new UX Concept. It features self-dimming windows and door mirrors are replaced by e-mirror camera housings, which display their images on internal screens.
All switchgear is touch-sensitive, and housed under transparent covers. And the front passenger, who has a different experience of the deconstructed instrument panel to that of the driver, has a separate centre display track-pad control built into the door armrest panel.
Combined with innovative, three-dimensional HMI technology, this design approach creates a uniquely immersive driving experience.
