  • Vehicle invisibility cloak

    Mercedes-Benz has created an invisibility cloak for a car. This technology uses flexible LED mats which reproduces the background image of the car’s surroundings.

    There is a camera mounted on the opposite side of the car. The image that is recorded is transmitted to the LED panel which displays the background whilst the car moves.

    Anything that makes you look like an idiot can't be cool.

    Cool is about being relaxed, in control of yourself and what surrounds you. Google glasses, in a normal situation makes you look like a overhyped information freaking manic.
