The Genesis is already compatible with smartphones, allowing owners to control various functions remotely, such as starting the engine and activating climate control settings.
In order to expand that compatibility to wearable computers, Hyundai has developed a series of ‘cards’ containing condensed information and compatible with the small screen of Google Glass.
Hyundai says push notifications to Google Glass will alert the owner when maintenance is due and allow quick service scheduling by enabling the wearer to initiate a phone call.
“Genesis is a unique take on luxury where the owner experience is enabled through the intelligent application of technology, features and services that empower the owner,” Hyundai’s Mark Dipko said.
“We feel this vehicle is a great product to showcase how the latest technology can enhance the ownership experience and give owners more time and convenience.”
As a bonus for Australian customers, by the time the Genesis Coupe arrives in local showrooms (2016, we suspect), Hyundai will have had plenty of time to fine-tune and improve the new system.
