Toyota’s LED-lit concept car lets your kids customize the hood

If you complained about your family’s drab-looking car when you were a kid, you’re going to love the latest incarnation of 
Toyota’s Camatte concept. The vehicle lets children (and creative adults) customize the look by translating their drawings to nearly 7,000 LED lights on the hood; you could change styles at a moment’s notice without having to swap panels (as with the 2012 Camatte) or break out some paint. There’s no word on the possibility of this technology reaching production models, although we wouldn’t count on it in the near future — even if higher energy consumption isn’t a factor, a light-up hood could get quite expensive. Still, Camatte raises hope that cars will one day be as unique as their drivers.
