If you don’t spice things up, being married can get a little stale from time to time, especially in the bedroom. That’s why some guys dress their chicks up like school girls, and others role play. Some like bondage; some like violence. Whatever it takes to get the juices flowing.
Buying a car is no different. You have to spice things up! Otherwise, you’ll just be stuck looking at the same thing EVERY SINGLE DAY of your life.
Realizing this potential problem, Johnson Controls Inc. has spent the last few years developing a plastic car interior surface that is capable of changing colors to match the owner’s mood.
Joining along in the $7.5 billion venture (!!!!) is China’s Yanfeng Automotive Trim Systems Co.
The concept could prove especially useful for vehicles that are used by ride-sharing services, said Han Hendriks— vice president of advanced product development at Johnson Controls Inc—in a recent interview with Automotive News.
Researchers are currently studying these chameleon-like interiors at 3 different technical centers, located in Dusseldorf, Shanghai, and Holland, Michigan. There are hopes that this new technology will be made available to the public in the very near future.
