Bosch has just announced it’s working on technology to introduce 3D displays into the automotive world – and although it’s primarily thinking of cars, Bosch’s track record suggests we won’t have to wait too much longer to see it on a bike.

Bosch were the first brand to create a digital gauge for the automotive world – for the Audi Quattro in 1994 – and now, the German technology giant has revealed it’s experimenting with 3D dash units.

Bosch has done some research too, which has revealed that 3D dashboards will allow motorists to process information more quickly – which is only ever a good thing. And you won’t need to wear special glasses to read it either.


Dr. Steffen Berns, President of Bosch Car Multimedia said: “The display’s depth of field means drivers can grasp important visual information faster, whether from an assistance system or a traffic-jam alert. Alerts that seem to jump out of the display are much more obvious and urgent.”

Admittedly, the technology is sure to make it into the four-wheeled world long before we see it on a bike – but it’s still fascinating to see how Bosch are going to next push the boundaries of dashboard technology.
