Heat Sensitive Car Paint on Nissan Skyline R33 GTR
Here’s a cool car painting project by the UK guys at Auto Kandy.
They used an already cool Nissan Skyline R33 GTR and made it even cooler by painting it with a specially formulated chromatic paint which changes tones from vibrant orange to dark burgundy with the outside temperature.

Nissan Nismo Smartwatch On Driver's Wrist While Driving The Car

After Samsung, Sony and Neptune Pine … Nissan decided to enter the smartwatch market. While their product is more targeted to connecting the driver with the car than all the bells and whistles of the fancy smartwatches on the market, Nissan’s Nismo promises to offer an array of tools to improve the driving experience. The smartwatch connects with your smartphone via a dedicated application which pulls information directly from the car’s computer.

Users will be able to have real time information about the trip, speed, fuel consumption and various performance averages as well as social media status update notification. Nismo will also allow the car’s computer to push maintenance notifications to it’s screen. The incorporated heart rate monitor (HRM) will constantly monitor the wearer’s pulse and compare it to current and past speeds, just the same as the biometric technology is used by performance racing drivers.

Another cool feature of the Nissan Nismo Smartwatch is it helps the driver with driving tips based on the information it receives. This way, if the weather forecast announces icy roads the Nismo will advise you to slow down or if the if a higher pulse rate is detected a reduced speed is counseled.

Nissan’s Nismo Smartwatch in in concept mode and no release date was confirmed by the car manufacturer. Given Nissan’s plans to develop more wearable technology to help improving driving experience, I am sure it’ll not take decencies to Nissan to release the Nismo watch to the consumer markets …
