Bit dazzling?? Might dazzle oncoming drivers.
Apart from making pretty patterns on a wall what eles do they do? I thought there is a cheap kit on the bay where you can set up your own strobing patterns for all the lights (until the bulbs blow lol)
These seem to be very clever. Detecting the oncoming traffic and your surroundings. They don't seem to light up the oncoming traffic or anything above the road in front of you. Interesting to see if these become legal in this country
I want I want I want ut now but I can imagine it will be a big cost if goes wrong
I'd hate to be the poor so and so coming the other way!!
Faced with this moving light show!
I hope they stay illegal!
LED Headlights are the way forward, these are amazing but overly complex as anyone with factory AFL's knows when the levellers then the motors go after a few years the light given is amazing the glare on the car in front is so much less and the light output around the car is incredible.
Cost will be a major issue as mfrs cash in on demand, I think Audi ask around £2,000 for it at the moment?
Looks great, They seem to light up everything without blinding other drivers, but the cost may exceed the appeal.
How can you tell they don't blind other motorists?
If you light up the other side of the road, the other driver will see it. The more you light it up, the brighter it will be, and the more dazzling it will be.
Sorry, but I do have a proper chip on the shoulder over headlamps.... The Brighter one is safer bull crap... Safer for who exactly. It's the whole "I'm alright Jack, so F*ck everyone else" mentality.
I have reall trouble seeing at night in the last 5 years, everyone seems to have gone for these white/blue bulbs ***** who fit 10k HIDs... I have no eye issues, and can see perfectly well in the dark, or in the daytime. But having to driving towards 2 freaking ww2 Searchlights is just plain stupid..
I anticipate these things will be just the same but movable! Oh joy!
The proof of it obviously will be in using it, not some promo video.

Watch the video! You can see that the individual facets switch on and off when a vehicle is in the light path. Even the car in front is not lit. You can see the brake and tail lights well.
All you need lighting really is the road and the surroundings. There's no point in lighting the air in front of you. If your headlights are aligned/ levelled correctly they should do exactly this except for being to avoid lighting other motorists cars. These new matrix lights appear to be able to do that, so i'd say they're safer.
