GM working on new enhanced vision systems

by Mark R

Research and Development at General Motors, in cooperation with several universities, is developing a way of using augmented reality in automobiles. This isn’t the same type of augmented reality used in scavenger hunts, but it is able to gather data from vehicle sensors and cameras to project images generated by compact ultraviolet lasers right on the surface of the windshield itself. Here is a link to a video where you …

ExiTool: For those who fear being snagged by the seatbelt

by Mark R

I have a mother that cannot stand watching films where the main characters drive into water. I think she has an irrational fear of drowning in a car, and films that show characters caught in their seatbelt don’t help.

SuperSkin could help save lives

by Edwin

Fancy going fast on a motorcycle? Well, the thrill of speeding down the freeway on a two-wheeler with the wind blowing against your face is definitely something one should experience at least once throughout their lifetimes. Unfortunately, there are some quarters who literally throw caution to the wind by taking safety very lightly, which could not only endanger their lives but that of others. Needless to say, wearing a helmet …
