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.

“I would love that, except for I wouldn’t do that,” Debbie replied.

“Yeah, you would,” Dave said.

Multitasking microwave at the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show

The Panasonic HomeCHEF 7-in-1 Compact Oven will be available on Amazon and for $499.99 in April. It can air fry, bake, steam, stew and ferment a variety of dishes. The Steam Convection mode sprays food with steam during the baking process to produce fluffier cakes and juicier meats.

“What took the microwave oven so long to become seven things in one?” Debbie asked. “It can ferment, too.”

“If you want to make some good homemade kimchi,  you’re gonna need this 7-in-1 Panasonic microwave,” Dave pointed out.

A tractor that drives itself

John Deere unveiled its first self-driving tractor that farmers can control with a smartphone. At 44,000-pounds, a regular 8R tractor and the 2430 chisel plow will cost a farmer over $500,000, according to CNET.

“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 tractors have been capable of steering themselves for two decades as 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.

Dave & Dujanovic can be heard weekdays from 9 a.m. to noon. on KSL NewsRadio. Users can find the show on the KSL NewsRadio website and app, as well as Apple Podcasts and Google Play. 

We want to hear from you.
