I wonder if that's street-legal here in the UK? "Not my car, guv: you can see the colour's different. Someone must have cloned the plate."

1) I bet that's expensive to fix if someone scratches it.

2) It's still got a pig ugly front grille.

Hope you dont mind, but it was ****ing me off that the video showed more of the guy filming than it did of the actual car, so I found another vid :p

Just make the rest of the car change to match the colour of the scratch.

Shame it can't change the ugly shape.

And you would definitely get pulled over/fined if you used that on the road.

once again makes me wonder why car companies spent millions on developing pointless cack like this instead of something sensible like better emissions and fuel economy.

Not colour, shade. It's basically e-ink from what I've read.

Thank you for valiading my irritation. What a tool.

Whilst the car is utterly disgusting, the paint is interesting.
I wonder if it will include the ability to give the finger to tailgating SUVs?

TBH I think it is awesome! That is obviously fairly trick with the individual cells allowing the various patterns and shapes but I wonder of a simpler whole panel or whole car type setup will ever make it to market? Would be quite cool if your car turned itself white to repel heat on a sunny day!

Or reliability. Or using metals which don't rust.
