BMW iX Flow, uses electronic ink technology normally found in e-readers to transform the car’s exterior into a variety of patterns in gray and white. When stimulated by electrical signals controlled by a phone app, the material brings different pigments to the surface, causing the car to take on a different shade or design, such as racing stripes, according to Reuters.
“You can match your outfit. You’re wearing like all pink. How much would you love driving in in a pink vehicle today?” Dave asked.

“This revolutionizes farming. You don’t need to be in the tractor … don’t need a person; you can turn that over to the robots. That is wild,” Dave exclaimed.
Deere’s tractorsas along as the farmer still sits behind the wheel. Deere’s road to autonomy began decades ago. In the mid-1990s, it introduced satellite GPS in tractors to help farmers with precision agriculture.
