(CBSNews) Future shopping for a car may not require a real car at all. Instead, shoppers will just pull on virtual reality goggles for a close look at the latest models. The kiosk of a company called FlowFound offers virtual test drives in several different cars.The kiosks are now available at selected dealerships around the country.
Nick Cybela, FlowFound’s CEO, designed the test drives to demonstrate advanced features that buyers aren’t likely to never encounter in a real test drive. “There’s so many self-driving safety performance and features that you just can’t try,” Cybela said. “Whether it’s launch mode or collision avoidance. And these things work, but they’re scary.”
