Futuristic materials to shape car of future
Sydney Morning Herald, 14 September 2010.

Abstract/Summary

Car windscreens could soon be made from plastic instead of glass in an effort to reduce weight and save fuel, while buttons could be replaced by jelly-like plastics to improve the user experience inside the car.

The car of the future could also have “chameleon paint” which would change its colour according to the owner’s mood or clothing on a particular day.

The move to alternative materials on cars is indicative of a push within the industry to trial new materials in an effort to reduce weight and, therefore, fuel use.
