as you probably know, the headquarters of BYK Instruments is in the south of Germany about 40 km south of Munich, close to the Austrian border. With the start of the new year, winter has also arrived in our region and has us firmly in its grip. In addition, as in many other regions of our world, the Corona virus has hit us and slowed us down in some projects and activities. Thus, we are a little late to thank you for your business and trust. We hope that you had a good start to the NEW YEAR.

Chameleon Car BMW iX Flow Category Icon Knowlegde

BMW iX Flow - is a chameleon

Having trouble deciding on a color?

At the touch of a button, the color changes from black to white. This is possible due to a special film consisting of millions of microcapsules filled with E-Ink (electronic ink) - a technology already used in displays for eBook readers. Differently charged color pigments are integrated into the foil and when an electric field is built up, they change their position and thus their appearance. In addition to color changes, patterns or flowing effects can be displayed: How about black racing stripes on a white body or make the spokes of the rims blink. This transformability can also offer very practical advantages: In strong sunlight, the vehicle could turn white to reduce interior heating, and in reverse, in winter, the film could ensure that as much heat as possible is retained by turning the exterior color black.

In this way, you can adjust the color and appearance of your car at any time to suit the occasion and your own mood – amazing!

This all-new innovation could be first seen at CES 2022.
