Cars are now advanced. There are electric cars and driverless cars. The latest advance is a car that lets you use your mind to control things. It is from Mercedes. It is called the Vision AVTR. The letters "AVTR" make people think of the movie Avatar. We cannot buy the car yet because it is just a concept car.

The Vision AVTR uses brain-computer interface. Computers "read" the driver's brain. The driver can do things using just their thoughts. Mercedes said it is a big step in the joining of man and machine. It said: "The car becomes an extension of your own body and a tool to discover the environment."
