Exclamation Lasers on Future 1 Series

It would be awesome to see this on the 1 Series a few years down the future. Anyone can guess how long before this actually goes into production?

I think it's a great idea. Honestly, the only real problem is keeping the cat alive.

Jeez, those guys who think it's cool to black out their headlights are going to have to work a little harder now...

I'm already ordering my Angel Lazer eye upgrade from Alex; the rays can penetrate titanium

It won't be long...laser diodes and light emitting diodes have progressed steadily over the years in terms of technological advances. A laser diode is basically an LED producing laser light at about 100mA, an LED at about 10 mA. Some type of laser module will be used to avoid the destruction of the diode as it reaches threshold current. Fun stuff

We will still have to read through 50k pages of arguments over whether the traditional land based cars have more “tunable” lasers than the newer, and more eco-friendly, hover series. BTW…the hover option will be a 3500 add on and only standard on cars shipped to Bora Bora.

Go to Guitar Center pick up micro galaxian laser, shoots 200+ beams for 100$. Plug it into 110 power converter set it on deck behind rear seats drive around at nite laser show inside your car. I am an idiot.
