German car manufacturing giant Volkswagen has taken the rather unconventional step of making specific 3D smart glasses available at one of its plants in Germany a bid to improve security. The glasses will eventually become part of the standard equipment used by its workforce at the facility.

In September 2015, Volkswagen became embroiled in one of the biggest scandals the car industry had ever seen. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the US discovered that many of the German car giant’s vehicles were fitted with a ‘defeat device’, which could, in effect, detect when the car’s emissions were being tested.
German car manufacturer Audi is set to release a brand new hydrogen-powered car. This new car is due to go into production and will feature the latest in green technology, potentially opening up a new path for cars not powered by fossil fuels.
In what are apparently the first signs of the results of the emissions rigging scandal, Volkswagen has reported a drop of almost 10% in its UK sales. The one saving grace is that the drop has also transferred to other car makers after demand tailed off.
