As it happens, we just had an encounter with said key. As you read this, our print associate editor Paulo Rafael Subido is in Portugal for the media test drive of the all-new 7-Series, and he has just sent us these photos. He himself is impressed with the BMW Display Key.

"I've never encountered anything as high-tech as this," Paulo wrote. "I've seen glass keys, but nothing with a touchscreen. With this, you can park the 7-Series automatically. There are a few driver functions as well."

Damn. What's next? A car key that also doubles as a mobile phone?
