Just spotted this and wondered what you guys thought of this!?

 

Looks a bit nuts but could be quite cool. After a long journey it could change colour near exhaust tips/bonnet etc or the car would be a different colour in summer/winter.

 

Different but interesting? Is this going to be the next big thing?

I like the idea, but as you see in that clip, half your car will look like some pleb has thrown paint remover all over it.

 

When it comes to heat, one side of the car will change more than the other (sunlight) the only time it would work, is night, or out of sunlight and rain. Then your car overall adjusts to a higher or lower temperature, and all changes at the same time.

 

I dont think I would be investing any time soon, even if it was only a couple of quid!

Fair enough I can see what you mean and I don't think it would be for me. I'm sure there will be a few people who will give it a go though just to be different!  :afro:

Now if they invented Predator cam that worked perfectly I'd like that.
Ideal for waiting up in the Lay-By without the reflective stripes giving me away ;)

I like the idea Clive - now that is a truely undercover cop car - especially if you get a camo one. Look behind you and you can only see the road, then all of a sudden, you flick a switch and its like the cop car materializes behind the bad guy...

 

That would release a few fragrances in most tugged car's interior!
