I kid you not when I tell you, I saw this and actually said, "WOW." Out loud. I hope they ram this baby into production 'cause I'm all over it. All. Over. It.
Our invention, called Virtual Cable™ is a unique display for a car navigation system. The driver sees the Virtual Cable™ image through the windshield. It appears as if suspended over the road, similar to a trolley cable. The image is in true 3D and appears to be a natural part of the landscape. The driver uses only peripheral vision to follow the Virtual Cable™.
