Suzuki FLix debuts at auto show

Sure to be the dream car of many here, Suzuki showed off their new movie theater car at a recent auto show.

One of the concept vehicles at NAIAS which somehow seemed to slip below the radar was the silver-screen-inspired XL7 Flix concept. The Flix concept offers film enthusiasts the ultimate mobile movie experience, being outfitted with an in-vehicle movie system. After parking at the optimal film-viewing destination, Flix’s clamshell roof can be opened, revealing a maximum-size moonroof that serves as a 40-inch movie screen.

Additionally, the XL7 concept’s front roof panel vents, giving way to a high-density digital projection system to display a family’s movie of choice.

Did you see how severe the angle is from the seat to the screen? Pain in the neck! Naaah, if you’re gonna go to all the trouble, do it right…

What I want to see is an enlarged van or meduim sized RV… burgundy interior and seats… the windshield has blackout curtains, the seats would all swivel toward the back, where a fully draped and masked wide screen covers the back wall, with DLP, surround sound, a little popcorn machine, candy case and beverage cooler… For a bigger alternative, the screen could also roll up, enabling you to refocus the projector to shoot out the back window onto something larger outside.

Call it the Roadshow. Anybody here want one of those??
