BMW is preparing to release a unique car seat, and the Germans call it ZeroG Lounger. In addition to the special structure for maximum comfort, the chair boasts unprecedented safety in the event of a collision. The company reports that this solution will be implemented in brand cars in the next few years.
One of the main features of the seat is that it can recline up to an angle of 60 °, but at the same time the seat belt will not interfere with the seated person and will completely cope with its main task. The thing is in a special design, in which it is located on the chair itself, and not on the central pillar, as usual. Yes, the belt is built into the seat to provide complete comfort when folding back, but the engineers did not stop there, continuing further developments in the direction of improving safety.

The seat has an airbag in the form of a cocoon, which unfolds during an accident to protect the passenger even when shifted to the side. It surrounds a person, and the handrails of the seat do everything possible to absorb the impact energy as much as possible. This is really something new and it would be interesting to see this mechanism in action.
Leaning back, passengers will have a beautiful view of the screen, which falls from the ceiling. BMW says that the screen not only displays information about the direction of travel, but also reduces motion sickness while driving. In addition, special pockets for smartphones are mounted in the seat, with a wireless charging function.
