That's not a projection headlight. That's the Matrix LED headlight that I showed. Shows it right at 32 sec that it's not a projection headlight.
It is not a trick. It's basic optical image projection, which has been going on for hundreds of years in magic lanterns, movie projectors, slide projectors, lately LCD and DLP projectors etc. And, it is simply the self-illuminating reversal of basic optical imaging capture, which evolved about half-a-billion years ago and is going on right now in your eyes as you read this.
Further to the explanation I gave in the previous message, here is a video I found with a discussion of HD-resolution projection in new Audi headlights. These use the DLP chip. Throughout the video you can see some examples of informational projection, a kind of HUD application.
OK thanks, I misunderstood re who wrote it. I don't use Twitter myself. I expect things will develop according to cost and competition - as they should.That's not Elon talking, that's me sending him a Tweet about the idea back in 2015. Who knows if he saw or read it.
I saw the same White M3P on White Oak today.. lolI saw a new model 3 on the 101 freeway in Sherman Oaks this week with the new headlights.
I noticed the change right away. They looked good, slightly noticeable but definitely not obvious to anyone other than a enthusiast.
