Taillight design in the 21st Century

With few exceptions, the design of most automobiles has hit a dead end for quite a while. I have a theory that the best and brightest designers in the automobile industry have funnelled all of their creativity and passion into designing car taillights. Tracing the design and evolution of these innovative taillights could make a great book or at least a New Yorker article. I’m available for the right price, BTW.
