HOW DOES A COLOR CHANGING BMW CAR WORK?

According to the reports, the surface coating of the BMW iX Flow with electronic ink contains millions of microcapsules with a diameter equivalent to the thickness of a human hair. Each of these microcapsules contains negatively charged white pigments and positively charged black pigments.

Depending on the chosen setting, their excitation with an electric field causes white or black pigments to collect on the surface of the microcapsule, imparting the desired shade to the vehicle body.
