BMW may be preparing to evolve the look of its iconic LED light rings, often referred to as ‘angel eyes’, if this new concept is anything to go by.
All too aware of the role it’s played in making LED daytime lights into the must-have jewellery over the last decade, BMW has dubbed its concept the ‘M4 Iconic Lights’.
Revealed at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the Iconic Lights gives the new M4 Coupe a more futuristic look, thanks to its advanced ‘Laserlight’ and OLED (organic LED) daytime lights.
Using OLED technology, which emits light from ultra-fine semiconducting layers of organic material, has allowed BMW to craft a more detailed design than conventional LED systems can offer.
At the front end, the use of BMW’s Laserlight tech has created a new angular look to the familiar daytime lights, lit in a vibrant new blue shade.
At the rear, BMW has gone with an extravagant look to the brake and indicator lighting, seemingly designed to appear like exposed glowing vertebrae.
As a technology showcase, BMW has also matched the Laserlight system to its satellite navigation, allowing the headlights to illuminate upcoming corners far earlier than the usual method of responding to steering input.
BMW hasn't offered any word on these features making their way to a future M4 update, although it has confirmed that OLED tech will feature in a new model in the near future.
