Mercedes-Benz unveils Avatar-themed car
Mercedes-Benz unveiled a concept car based on the movie franchise Avatar, featuring scale-like flaps and technology to recognise drivers by their heartbeat, the carmaker says.

The vehicle called VISION AVTR, which also stands for ADVANCED VEHICLE TRANSFORMATION, claims to exhibit "a completely new interaction between human, machine and nature," a news release said.

It does not feature a steering wheel but rather a "control unit" that recognises the driver by their heartbeat and breathing, Mercedes-Benz says.

Among its most striking features are the 33 "bionic flaps" at the rear of the car that move independently.

Drivers can select menu options from images projected onto the palm of their hand and the curved screen display shows the fictional Avatar world of Pandora.
