Submission + - Optical camouflage used to render car interiors invisible (geek.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Keio University in Japan is using optical camouflage to make the interior of a car effectively invisible. Professor Masahiko Inami at Keio University believes the camo can be adapted so the driver would no longer see the interior of the car as it is replaced with a constantly updated exterior view.

That may be jarring at first, but it does make a lot of sense from a visibility perspective. Nothing outside is hidden from the driver, and turning to see where you are reversing would allow the driver to see very clearly what obstacles there are. Importantly, the projection retains a sense of depth as to where things actually are in relation to the vehicle. Another advantage of such a system is it can render daylight visuals even when it’s dark outside, again meaning better visibility for the driver.
