German carmaker BMW has unveiled the world's first "colour-changing" car at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
-​How does it change colour?
The concept car, called the BMW iX Flow, uses electronic ink technology normally found in e-readers to transform the car's exterior into a variety of patterns in gray and white.
-​Change your car's colour with an app
When stimulated by electrical signals controlled by a phone app, the material brings different pigments to the surface, causing the car to take on a different shade or design, such as racing stripes.
​-Future possibility
In the future, the changes would also be controlled by a button on the car's dashboard or perhaps even by hand gestures. No energy is needed to maintain the colour the driver selects.
-​Spectrum of colour
Though the vehicle displayed at CES could only alternate between gray and white, the technology will be expanded to cover a spectrum of colour, according to BMW.
