The car with a heart.

Did you always feel like you always had to stand out with your car? Well now, Lexus might give you a reason to buy their vehicle. The company has just unveiled a concept that showcased a custom RC-F couple that features a human heartbeat.

Yes, a human heartbeat. The concept was developed by Lexus Australia and along with M&C Saatchi Australia’s creative tech division. The way it works is that a sensor attached to the driver is wired to a circuit board that will then send electric charges on electroluminescent paint. This in turn reads the driver’s heartbeat and will effectively show it from the car’s body making it look like it is alive.

Lexus also mentioned that it is also looking into making cars that could recognize a driver’s emotions. For example, if a driver is experiencing exhaustion or anger, appropriate actions could be taken to avoid accidents.

While the concept is still it its early stages, it is a great step to see where vehicles of the future might be. Watch the video below and tell us what you think.
