    Chrysler 300 sports display-equipped wheels at SEMA

    Taken from Engadet.com:

Shown at SEMA 2007, the pictured Chrysler 300 was sporting a set of LED-equipped wheels, each of which contained its own (effectively worthless) color display. Unfortunately, all we have to go by is a short video (posted after the jump, if you dare) which incorrectly calls the car a Bentley, so as you may expect, we've no idea how much coin these will demand. But then again, your money would probably be better spent on in-car electronics -- or pretty much anything else, to be frank.
    Here is a link to the video (not sure how to embed it as not a mainstream vid site :confused)

    And link to full article: http://www.engadget.com/2007/10/31/c...heels-at-sema/

    What do you guys think to them?!?

    I reckon they look cool on a show car as it is something different but they would be totally unpractical for an every day car IMO.

    Im also not sure as to whether you would make out the images whilst the car is moving.

    Theres a set of wheels better than that, displays an image as you're going along. It's 3 lines of LEDs and as they spin on the moving car it displays an image/text. You can even set what you want them to say with a laptop to add your own custom images/text. Totally pointless and not something i'd want but would be fun none the less
