But will it have an invisible toilet?

Will it still be sufficiently visible from the outside that other drivers will see it's there?

Better article http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-57525601-1/could-a-see-through-to y ota-prius-prevent-accidents/

Linked from subby's article, but made to seem like it's just about that invisible cloth stuff 

Also, I finally figured out the deal with the bizarre spacing. I think Fark filters plaintext URLs for some bizarre reason (but not the href), so anyone who copies/pastes from the text will pick up a space.

I wish to make an invisible investment in this technology.

I can`t see the benefit in this.

I can't see what you did there.

The technology does not render surfaces difficult to see, but rather apparently transparent. You can clearly see that the surface is there, if you're looking right at it, but you can see 'through' it. This particular implementation does not affect the exterior surface of the vehicle, but rather the *interior*, from the driver's point of view. It enables the driver to 'see through' opaque parts of the car, in order to better see what's immediately near it.

It's a deliberate filtering feature, meant to discourage spam. If it's too easy to post working links, then that's what we'll get. The system makes robot posting of spam links worthless, by rendering the links themselves 'broken' and unusable. If you use the hypertext method, it won't happen.

Amazing! I SO want one!
 
2012-10-06 02:26:21 PM
I used to have one, but I forgot where I parked it.
 
2012-10-06 02:49:04 PM
Heh. I went to an air show back in the 80s and there was an empty area roped off with a sign that said F-117A.

If an invisible car just runs over my invisible dog is the driver liable?

I ditched my Prius mainly because it's impossible to see out of, and even though I'm a careful driver I would nearly run over pedestriand crossing an intersection because the blind spot is so large. Got an Audi A3; best decision I ever made. Even got me laid by a super hot, albeit psycho, chick I met at the carwash. Cool story bro!

Lemme guess, it's that new car Tesla has been promising?
 
2012-10-06 06:37:07 PM
Why not just paint existing cars with clear paint? You could see right through them then!

Duh!

No one should be allowed to post wonder woman anything until they've watched all five minutes of Technology/Transformation: Wonder Woman by Dana Bimbaum (who I always imagine as being exactly like Maude Lebowski).

Yes, but good luck finding a witness.
