Digital Key for BMW i8
Here is another reason to fall in love with the new BMW i8. According to a credible automotive source, drivers of the BMW i8 will be furnished with a cool computerized key fitted with useful functions and information. Who would have thought that keys could do more than open and close a lock? The BMW i8 smart key will have its own high-resolution LCD screen to display the charging levels of the car, the distance the car can go before recharge and the time on a charge. This is a personal register stored neatly in this convenient device.
No other company has thought about such an incredible piece of technology before and it shows the extents to which BMW is making an effort to go digital. In an interview this year, a BMW spokesman reported that the company will officially migrate from the manual world by 2020. It is the aspiration of the company that the market will be flooded with BMW connected cars which can be easily monitored by the company’s information hubs nationwide. Digital and eco-friendly, this key will never rust.
A computerized key is no surprise for those BMW fans religiously following the progress of the company in the digital world. But for others, this suggested addition to the BMW i8 package makes it even more attractive. This is the time of smart devices and everyone is looking for a convenient way to live and work. However, the German-based automakers have not given the green flag on this suggested smart key for the BMW i8 so for now it will only be a cool proposal.
