This 'transparent' Land Rover hood lets you see the ground you're driving over

By on

Those that have done any serious off-roading are well aware of the importance of visibility and knowing the terrain you’re traversing. There’s no better way to gain this insight than simply having a look for yourself but when behind the wheel, that can be a bit challenging.

Fortunately the folks at Land Rover have come up with a clever concept to alleviate this hurdle: a transparent hood.

Ok, so it’s not a “real’ transparent hood. Instead, it uses a heads-up display that projects a view from under the front part of the vehicle so it looks as though you can see through the hood. Such a system would serve as little more than a distraction for most drivers but for off-roading enthusiasts, it could be immensely useful.
