So far, invisibility systems for cars have been pretty lame or not terrible useful. Land Rover seems to have finally nailed it with the "transparent bonnet" (hood) on its Discover Vision concept car. It works via a heads up display, which projects a see-through view of the road from cameras located in the grill (see the video after the break). That permits a driver navigating in tight quarters to view sharp rocks or other obstacles, and even see the wheels turning below the car. The tech will be on display next week at the New York International Motor Show, and is part of the company's (apparently see-through) vision for future models.
