News: Land Rover’s Invisible Hood Concept


At the recent New York International Auto Show, Land Rover displayed this concept for an invisible hood that allows you to view the ground beneath your engine. That way you can actually see what you’re running over WHILE YOU’RE RUNNING OVER IT. The future, ladies and gentlemen. The hood works by projecting the feed from a video camera in the vehicle’s grill onto the lower part of the car’s windshield. There’s also a heads-up display with basic car info. Oh — it says I’m about to hit something. Okay, now it says I did hit something. And look, there he is under the car!

Keep going for a graphic and a video of the invisible hood in action.
