That's the opinion of College for Creative Studies President Richard Rogers at a roundtable on design held by J.D. Power and Associates. Rogers sees the influence of video games into car design in the next 5 to 10 years. He is expecting more futuristic designs to become closer to production. The roundtable highlights an important trend in the automotive industry. Creating unique vehicles that attract buyers into the emotional side of a vehicle is key for an automaker's success.
