Invisibility cloaks might be great for sneaking around as a teen wizard, but making your car invisible probably isn’t such a great idea; still, Mercedes Benz’s promo for the F-Cell zer0 emissions technology is impressive all the same. One side of the car was covered with sheets of multicolored LEDs, showing a feed from a Canon 5D MkII camera on the other side, before Mercedes took to the streets of Germany to confuse pedestrians.


It's pretty limited, and was only meant for a publicity stunt...

But it's pretty neat none-the-less.

Wonder what else this has been used for...

The image it produces isn't perfect, but it's pretty funny to think of the people that saw it driving through Germany.

Cloaking has come a long way...

Wish I could have driven that thing >.<

Just think of the practical joke possibilities...

The perfect get-away car. Haha. I wouldn't be sneaking into the girls locker room with that level of invisibility.. you can't see me, right?

I wouldn't say "invisible".

And if so, it's only invisible on 1 side haha...

But yea, other than that, it's VERY cool! I'd love to see this type of technology furthered. I always thought "invisibility" could be somewhat achieved with LED screens and camera's.

Cool post


nice find

Was just quoting the title of the article.

I tried to clarify in my post that it was just cameras and that it wasn't a perfect cloaking...

But that's what happens. ATS wants you to quote sensationalized titles, and we get yelled at for using said titles.

The never-ending cycle...

Oh i get it. I wasn't yelling either.

When i said it wasn't invisible, i was speaking to whoever wrote the article. Not you.

So yea, sorry mr.

Hah!

That was pretty awesome actually.

If only they could hide the wheels too, then it would've been much harder to see.

Obviously it's not really "invisible", but the whole marketing campaign was creative.

Pretty amazing, but I have seen this done many years ago in military related applications.

Why is this genius? Wouldn't it make you more likely to be in an accident?

Interesting. I wonder how many wrecks that would cause.
