Default Optical Camouflage Renders The Backseat Of A Car Transparent



Quote:
The problem with the backseat--really with the whole rear of the car--is that itís in your way when youíre trying to reverse. So researchers at Keio University in Japan have applied optical camouflage technology to automobiles, making the back seat appear transparent so the driver can see straight through it when backing up. After a pair of rear-mounted cameras project whatís behind the car onto a half mirror, the video is processed in such a way that objects appear in actual size, giving the driver the same sense of depth he or she would have if the rear of the car were really transparent--something standard camera/monitor setups donít provide. Ultimately the researchers want to kill the blind spot by making the entire car appear transparent to the driver.

So if you have passengers sitting in the backseat, they'll appear as dismembered floating upper torsos?

Neato!

Gonna be difficult for me to change my habit of actually looking back as opposed to relying on the rear-view mirror.

As long as my passengers don't mind me staring at their breasts and crotches while backing up... cool.

So how do you park a car that's entirely transparent to you? Commence the curbing!
