    Oh, and the car starts thanks to a facial recognition system.

    “We are convinced that the future of mobility lies not in the improvement of performance. We will replace the cylinders and the horsepower by the connectivity and the technology you care about. By doing this, we create the next generation of smart device: the car,” explains Byton on its web site.

    What we want, basically, is make you forget that you are in a car and allow you to relax as if you would in your own living room. The idea is noble, but the challenges are daunting.
