This photo by itself isn’t all that interesting, as it shows the 2015 (yes, 2015) Volkswagen Golf under a cover. What’s cool about this is that they projected images onto the cover, and you’d think you were looking at the real thing, as you can see in the next image.
Cameras....added technology for no reason again. It's good to know at least two other people know how to adjust mirrors. I laugh at the people who's face I can see in their side mirrors, you know they are clueless head turners.
I agree with you, TJ. Many years ago, when I tried Cadillac's Night Vision technology, I found myself driving in fear. I worried that I would be looking at the Night Vision screen when I drove off the road.
Learned to drive in a '58 Chevy BelAir, 283, 3 on the tree. Bought a 56 VW Beetle, 1200CC, 4 on the floor. I discovered that the perception of acceleration was relative! Dream car was my '61 Jag XKE followed by a '58 Mercedes 280 SL. I want the Jag back! Again, perception of acceleration was relative. The Merc was probably a little faster off the line but the Jag was ever so much more entertaining. Suicide doors make sense in a Rolls. The object is to get the driver and passenger the opportunity to enter and egress with grace and dignity. As far as cameras go, what ever happened to situational awareness? I love to drive, no matter the platform and I check mirrors virtually constantly. If a vehicle exists in my blind-spot, it must have been transported from the Enterprise because in any other circumstance I'd have seen it. Camera's would seem to detract from situational awareness, not contribute to it.
