As you may already be aware of, the BMW i8 lays claim to being the first production car to feature laser headlights. The main benefit of said system is, of course, an active range of up to 600 metres as well as being less harsh on the eyes of pedestrians or other motorists.

Not content with being the first, the firm is set to present an intelligent BMW Laserlight system at the upcoming 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this January. While specific details are still sketchy, the new system is now hooked up to an array of sensors, cameras and driver aid systems.


No doubt that this will enable the lighting system to automatically adjust its range as well as activate the high beams when necessary. In relation, BMW will also showcase Organic Light system which features OLEDs (organic light-emitting diodes).

Previously seen on the BMW Vision Future Luxury concept, OLEDs differ from normal LEDs by generating light across its entire surface, as well as being only 1.4 mm thick. By allowing the modules to be activated independently, designers are granted more freedom when it comes to designing the shape of the lights.
