Invisible cars aren’t just for superheroes anymore. That’s right, it’s rumored that Toyota recently patented a cloaking device that would make part of the vehicle appear invisible! Our experts at Toyota of North Charlotte are going to go over what this innovative Toyota tech rumor plans to do to our vehicles and how it will also act as a Toyota safe driving feature.
Toyota tech straight from the movies
You won’t need a castle to sneak around in at night to use this cloaking device! This rumored Toyota tech is supposed to help the everyday driver. Toyota stated that a cloaking device like this could be made today, but it would require a lot of expensive equipment and cameras. All this gear would make the price of a modern N Charlotte Toyota skyrocket and out of the price range of most residents. But Toyota is going to be trying some new technology out that will help achieve this clear car while still having it be affordable for the everyday consumer.
Toyota wants to make the road more visible to the driver by making the A-pillars on the left and right of the vehicle’s dashboard appear transparent. This Toyota tech would give the driver a better view of their surroundings and will help them see road hazards easier. This is also a good feature for pedestrians! Drivers will be able to avoid accidentally running into pedestrians because they will have a better view of their surroundings.
They are supposedly planning on using mirrors to achieve this goal. These mirrors will manipulate the light and make the A-pillars appear invisible. Toyota wanted to do this for safety since A-pillars on cars have gotten larger and larger to keep up with safety regulations, and are now impairing the driver’s view of the road. This light bending Toyota tech is still being worked on today. Who knows? Maybe the next time you are buying a new Toyota, you’ll have the option to get this Toyota of the future.
