With the flick of a switch, the color of this Nissan will change to match your mood or your outfit. The designers and engineers have worked out a way to rearrange the molecules in the paint so that when an electric current passes through them, the eyes perceive a different color. The colors can be controlled by the drivers. Since it requires electricity, the default color is white. The car can only change color when it is on.
Implications - The new paint coating is called "paramagnetic" and features iron oxide particles. Scientists have discovered that by using this type of paint coating a very wide array of colors can be chosen by the driver.
