To highlight the impressive styling of the new 2017 IS, Lexus today unveiled a custom vehicle wrapped in 41,999 programmable LEDs that turn the car into a screen capable of broadcasting dynamic graphics and videos.

Lexus used hand-applied LEDs to turn the vehicle into an eye-catching screen. In addition to broadcasting graphics, the LED-covered IS can also generate colorful, mesmerizing animations in response to gestures and music.

Three distinct modes allow the custom LED-covered IS to interact with sounds and people in its vicinity. Attract mode features a loop of colorful graphics that highlight the strong lines of the IS and play into its bold styling. Music Viz mode is designed to respond to music, as the LEDs will create custom, responsive displays that perfectly sync to any song. Gesture mode allows the motion of the LED animations to be controlled by users’ hand movements with the help of a gaming console. This mode directly connects the car and the driver, allowing the person to send a signal and see the car respond.

The custom car produces 175,000 lumens when fully illuminated, and the LED strips, if placed end-to-end, would stretch half a mile in length.

The car is featured in UK chart-topping artist Dua Lipa’s new music video for her hit song “Be the One.”
