Sure, the Tesla infotainment screen is nice, but for a true cinema experience, you’ll need a BMW Theatre Screen. Simply put, it adds a 5G-connected, 31-inch panorama display in 32:9 format with smart TV functions and a resolution of up to 8K to the backseat of a few upcoming high-end BMW models. They are also working with Amazon to fully integrate the Fire TV experience within the Theatre Screen system, which means you’ll easily be able to stream videos, listen to music, and watch downloaded shows, all on-the-go.

Color changing paint is nothing new, but the BMW iX Flow takes it to a whole new level. It’s capable of fluid color changes in real-time, thanks to a specially developed E-ink body wrap. When this wrap is stimulated by electrical signals, the electrophoretic technology brings different color pigments to the surface, resulting in a body skin that can change shades instantly. Unlike standard displays or projectors, this technology does not require additional energy to keep the chosen color state constant. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.
