Concept: Land Rover Discovery Vision
Invisibility is just one of its super powers
BOA STING AN INNOVAT ION FIRST SEEN IN BRO SNAN Bond blowout Tomorrow Never Dies, off-road expert Land Rover has created an invisible bonnet by placing tiny cameras underneath it. Trained at the ground beneath, they project what they see on to the windscreen’s advanced heads-up display, giving the illusion of gazing straight through the hood, helping you navigate round potholes and rough terrain.
Laser headlights track incoming traffic, ensuring you don’t blind anyone with your high beams, and everything down to the tint of the windows is controlled by gestures. You can even park the car remotely using your smartphone – very OO7. And while this may be a concept for now, its tech will dripfeed into new Discovery Sports from next year. landrover.com, out 2015
