The colour-changing car

The BMW iX Flow can change colour.

The magic comes from the E Ink technology, which you may have seen in Amazon Kindle's e-paper display.

The BMW iX Flow's exterior colour can be changed from white to shades of grey and black.

This option can have multiple uses, says the company.

You can change the colour according to your mood.

The car can flash colour, making it easier to find in a parking lot.

Turning it white during the day will reflect heat and help keep the car cooler.

Now is that cool or what!

The fully autonomous sports car

The Indy Autonomous Challenge -- a fully autonomous race competition for sports cars -- was held for the first time at CES 2022.

The Dallara built AV-21 cars were the official vehicles for the race.

Each driverless car -- which runs on custom software developed by university students from around the world and uses algorithms to make all the driving decisions in real time without human intervention -- can reach a speed of 170 mph.

The cars are fitted with cameras, lasers and Lidar sensors to help them avoid obstacles.

Using the sensor, they can reach a speed of 100 mph in the dark without using any lights.

The future of delivery vehicles?

It can turn 360 degrees and do a crab slide (slide sideways).

Think about it! A tractor that runs on its own when instructed or programmed for a particular task.

That's the John Deere 8R autonomous tractor.

One can keep the track of it via a connected app.
