AMOLED panels in cars - what colour would you pick?

Hi guys,

 

I stumbled upon this news about Jaguar developing a cat with AMOLED panels (like huge curved screens) that would allow you to change the car's bodywork colour with the touch of a button.

 

What do you think of this type of innovation? It might sound silly, however, this type of structural electronics also has potential positive implications for healthcare and aerospace industries, for example, beyond just picking colours.

 

If you had this type of car though, what colour would you choose? Cat Very Happy Mine would be summer yellow in the winter and a lavender/purple colour in the summer. โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ’œ

That would be so handy! The mom of my boyfriend wouldn't have to buy new cars then just because she wants another colour! (It's her 3rd Corsa E now because she wanted another colour)

Yes my car is also red @Marjo . It would be cool to change colours though. Can you just imagine what the neighbours would think? It would be 'Blimey ..another new car??!!' rofl

@Marjo 

 

Interesting but @Cleoriff makes an excellent point, I somehow think this will end up a feature you have to go to the dealer for.

 

My favourite colour is dark (sometimes referred to as British Racing) Green but I tend to think Black or Silver looks better on cars.

Nope not for me. Probably amusing for the first month or so then I would probably just stick with the one.
My best colour
Gun metal grey
