A car's glass roof by day and heating by night - Ole Oleds...



The photos above are a bit of Rorschach test, in part because many of us have never seen anything quite like it. Depending on your view, it might appear to be a futuristic dentist’s chair, or perhaps even a new millennium toilet (we’ve been known here at SmartPlanet to provide such visual treats).
Or mabye you’re seeing it for what it is. According to German chemical giant BASF, the image shows what the inside of your car might look like one day.

Focus on the roof. The glass-effect, hexagonal openings allow a clear view upwards by day. Open the car door or push a button come night time, and they provide interior illumination - having been charged up by solar cells, nonetheless. BASF developed the dimples in partnership with Holland’s Philips Lighting, using OLED, or organic light emitting diode, technology. Read more about this real 'green technology' here:
