Samsung wants to put more TVs on the road. Trying to pass a semi-truck on a two-way, one-lane road can easily lead to a deadly head-on collision, since it's almost impossible to see around a semi without inching out into the opposite lane. Samsung's Safety Truck would make drivers safer by allowing them to see past tall trucks through a television attached to the back of the semi.
The Safety Truck comes equipped with a front-view camera that provides a peek at what's ahead for any driver stuck idling behind the truck. A wall of four television monitors hung on the back of the semi connects to a wireless camera attached to the front. The live feed from the camera shows what the driver of the truck sees, allowing drivers behind to make decisions about whether or not it's safe to pass the slower semi, both during the day and at night.

It would be cool to see truckers hack their teles at extended truck stops and gather around for ghetto drive in theaters made of close together semi's extended back screens.
