BMW has announced plans to introduce a new concept at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

The company declined to release pictures but said the concept will showcase the "kind of lighting innovations we can expect in the future, while at the same time reinforcing its leadership position in the field of lighting technology."

That's not much to go on but the automaker confirmed plans to introduce improved Laserlights that are connected to cameras, sensors and driver assistance systems. The company this could result in a number of new functions but declined to elaborate.

BMW also suggested the concept will have OLED (organic light-emitting diodes) taillights that use elements that are just 1.4mm thick.

The Consumer Electronics Show kicks off on January 6th, so stay tuned for full details.
