    The outdoor display was part of the Amazon Alexa event held yesterday outside of the Amazon Spheres building. I am not sure if they will be there today as well though. Friday's event is completely seperate.

    Anyone notice — if you zoom in on the touch screen you can see there’s an option for the side mirrors to fold in automatically. Neat.

    I did. While we are looking at that picture, does anyone have an idea on what the "Ambient" button controls on the Climate page? @SpinDoc7, these images are only creating more questions!!!

    Why did it take me this long to foresee the order process for a Rivian will be available with Prime?

    I saw that. I’m guessing lighting inside the cabin. Sort of a dimmer switch/lighting color kind of thing. Some new ICE vehicles are showing a feature like this in their TV ads.

    Right, but this is on the Climate page, not the Lighting page... This sounds crazy but would it be a button to match the temperature outside?

    Pretty sure it's for ambient lighting. I've seen a lot of the lighting in pictures...behind the vents in the dash, on door panels, etc.

    Whether that is the control screen for it or not, I think the ambient lighting will be pretty cool.

    Agreed 100%. I love the idea of ambient lighting. I just find the placement of ambient lighting controls on the climate screen slightly odd....although 70% of the ambient lighting is tucked into the AC vents while the remaining 30% is tucked in the door handles.

    That is one of the updated questions I left with @Lil'O Annie, so hopefully we find some of these things out soon enough. If not, we have San Fran or we just start blowing up their Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram with questions left unanswered...

    It would be sweet if they had a monitored Twitter feed that we could send questions in during these Customer events and then the questions could be answered as they appeared and those questions and answers would be visible to those online and those at the event....Not everyone is outgoing enough to confront a Rivian employee with questions...this alleviates that issue and gives everyone not there as well insight into what is going on...
