The internet is freaking out over this car's hologram butler

Back in 2012, holograms were all the rage. Tupac had just returned from the grave to tear up Coachella, and we all spent literal minutes musing over the endless potential of holo-tech.

Then we forgot about it for a few years.

UNTIL NOW.

Swanky car manufacturer Bentley have released some concept shots of how they think luxury motors will progress in the next 20 years, and the internet is going bananas over the inclusion of hologram butlers.

Design honcho Stefan Sielaff and his team presented the vision in a bid to show just how keen the traditionalist, old-school Bentley are to embrace new technology.

And the hologram butler aspect is far more than a futuristic-for-the-sake-of-it, "Welcome to the Land of Tomorrow!" flourish: it's based on the idea that 'elite' drivers would rather bark their orders at a faux-faced servant than a Siri-esque personal assistant.

How much would such a car cost? No word as of yet, but we assume somewhere in the sixty-squillion-bazillion pound territory. Start saving now, and spend some of the wait checking out the photos below and giving Ask Jeeves a long overdue visit. He misses you, you bastards.
