Ever since America escaped the tyranny of the round and rectangular sealed beams, there's been continuous and determined progress in the field of seeing at night with your car. We've gone from incandescents to halogens to HIDs to LEDs, and now, finally, we're going to have lasers. Like a pair of Death Stars at the front of your car.
Of course, like most currently hyped headlight designs, the name is deceptive. I hear laser headlights and I think, sure, I know how those will work. You just fire a pair of high-intensity laser beams out of the front of your car and you drive by the light of all the burning cars and buildings and trees. Brilliant!
