Believe it or not, the cars of the future are already here today (well, sort of). From flying vehicles to those which offer a chameleon-like colour scheme, innovation is the name of the game at this year’s CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas. Let’s take a look at three concept cars to fully appreciate just how far the entire industry has advanced.
Back to the Future?
While the notion of flying cars has existed since the early 20th century, such concepts were considered to represent nothing more than the stuff of fiction. Things might soon be about to change thanks to the new ASKA Drive & Fly vehicle. Somewhat resembling the handheld drones that have received so much attention in recent times, The ASKA A5 can accommodate three passengers and a driver. Its developers claim that it is capable of flying for up to 400 kilometres before the unit will need to be recharged (1).
Carpool karaoke might become much more than a entertaining television show in the not-so-distant future. Two firms (Stingray and The Singing Machine) have joined forces to launch a new type of karaoke. An integrated software package will present lyrics to passengers via a standard video screen. However, this screen will become disabled when the car is in motion; ensuring that the driver is not distracted while the passengers continue to sing along.
A Palette for Every Taste
BMW has likewise introduced what is sure to be one of the most popular concept cars of 2023. Dubbed the iX Flow, this medium-sized sedan has been equipped with a type of colour-changing technology that allows users to choose a combination of no fewer than 32 distinct hues. These tones can also be combined to create what can only be called a one-of-a-kind experience while on the open road. Although the iX Flow will not be available to the public until 2025, there is little doubt that it will leave a lasting impression upon all CES visitors.
These are a handful of the innovations that may soon enter into the mainstream marketplace. Even if you cannot afford such technological marvels, there may still be times when you wish to determine the value of your vehicle before an upgrade.
