The company calls it the ZeroG Lounger and it's making the case to be seen as the ultimate in comfort. BMW said Tuesday that this seat is slated for reality in the "next few years" and boasts some pretty well-thought-out touches. But first, its main trick: the recline.

When reclined, passengers will get a perfect view of the screen that drops down from the headliner. BMW said the screen, which can show directional information, combined with the seating position can also help reduce motion sickness while driving. Its last party trick? Those riding in the comfy seats can place their phones in a holder to charge the battery at any time.

We have a few more years to wait for the ZeroG Lounger, but so far, it sounds well worth the wait.
