Is it possible to change the color of your car without having to repaint it?
Yes, by pressing a button.
The new cars, made by the most important car manufacturers, can change color every time we want it by pressing a simple button and then without having to go to the body shop.
Car changes color with the touch of a button
The structure of a car that changes color at the touch of a button consists of two very thin layers of plastic (nylon) placed above the car body.
The innermost layer (the one attached to the car body of the car) is a material that allows reflection and diffusion of light in all directions within the layer itself; the second layer, the outermost one, contains LED lights inside it so small as to be invisible, which diffuse the light of the desired color.
Can I change the color of my car without costs?
Yes, with this technology you can change the color of your car without paying and without going to the car body shop to repaint it. To do this we need to set the color program through the keyboard located inside the car. For each button, we can store a different color using the color code book provided.
Each color has its own code, this is memorized in a program that can be recalled by pressing a simple key.
When I want to change the color, I just press the corresponding button. In addition to my favorite color programs there is the main program, which is the default color of the car, the one I chose at the time of purchase.
A few years ago, a video was uploaded, built with skill using a video editing program, which showed a car that changed color several times.
In addition to using the control panel inside the car, you can select the program to change the color of your car from the button located in the remote control of the ignition key.
An important thing to remember is that for reasons of public safety, the color change of the machine is allowed only once a week and at the first ignition of the car. The on-board computer will not allow changes outside of these rules.
The number of colors that can be saved varies depending on the options that have been purchased, some manufacturers also allow you to load shapes and logos via USB.
In some cars model, the system is connected to the alarm system: if someone gets too close to the car it’s color changes in the corresponding side.
The smart license plate
Speaking of safety, remember that since last year the vehicle identification plates will have a colored light bulb that will define the status of the car, for this they have been called “smart license plates”.
The light bulb is connected to the car’s on-board computer that receives updates from the police servers.
Depending on the color of the light bulb it will be easy to identify:
- Red for an uninsured vehicle.
- Green when a vehicle is legit.
- Yellow for unpaid car tax.
- Flashing red for a stolen vehicle.
- Black for a vehicle that does not carry enough passengers according to the “autostop alert” system.
- White for tampered system.
Ultimately, among cars that change color and license plates with colored light bulbs, we say that we will no longer be able to define our city’s streets gray.
