Z71TahoeEX is an unknown quantity at this point
You put that on your car and it’ll be right at home sitting outside the corner Bodega

Why the pixelated censor area over the control box in your video? Is it pornographic, or in the witness protection program?

Not my video, it is the company that made it... I would use them as regular blinkers much nicer than the Ford van

As normal blinkers they would work for me.

I agree if someone was to install these and make them flash like a Disco Ball it is the wrong car but if you use it as a side blinker it would be a lot nicer than anything you currently have on your car. I was looking at possibly integrating the side blinker in my mirror caps but this look also very clean. If someone is in need of a respray then they could get rid of those Ford Van blinkers on the side.

I agree, they should just show it as a blinker, ie.... on and off and not the wave motion. If anything other than that it screams Ricer badly or something you would get out of a J.C. Whitney catalog.

IDK, The strobe effect would be cool for parade laps as a pace car.

I saw some early prototypes when I was at their shop in England last summer. The LEDs are fully programmable, they just do a few things to show some variety and some of that can come across as a bit blingy, but the end result doesn't have to be.

Agreed, would be great to have white light on unloc/lock and then as an indicator repeater when ignition is on.

Where can you buy these, I couldn't see them on Divina Tech's website?

I don't think they're production ready yet.

Sorry to be late to the party, I had no idea these had been seen outside a small group on Face-ache. Rich is right, the video demo was just demonstrating some of the capability in the programming for the prototype.
I used a controller with a wireless interface to my tablet so I can change the code without having to remove them or plug in. I put a string of RGBW led's inside the strake with a programmable controller with wifi built in. It allows small but handy functions without field wiring. The possibilities are endless, such as remote diagnostic or updates, sequence alignment between other lights in the network, dimming the running lights when the headlights come on or turning red when in sport mode.
Here's an example of the network in action across 5 controllers -


What you see in the demo's is not how I run the car on the street. Promise!! Much like our tail lights, we could have them doing anything but you have to have a bit of class with cars like ours. That's why the animated functions that are flashed are very simple and subtle on the finished item.

These aren't actually products we were planning on making. I only cast two sets of strakes with the LED cavities as a personal project for my own car. I think they are cool though
It's highly unlikely that you'll see them on the website in the near future.

That's a shame. especially if you already have the moulds to cast them. I'd be up for a set which were simple turn signal repeaters, MOT friendly, just repurpose the wire from the current blob and make a nice badge to replace it.

My oil filler cap fits fine by the way after bit of lube
