Land Rover Designs 'Invisible' Car Bonnet

Your next car might be transparent.

Land Rover has unveiled a stunning concept of a car which uses cameras and augmented reality to turn the bonnet 'see through', from the driver's perspective.

The live camera relay from the vehicle’s grille is overlaid on the view of the terrain ahead, over the front of the car:

The idea named 'Transparent Bonnet' by the literally-minded company, and is just a prototype for now.

But Land Rover imagines that drivers in rough terrain could benefit hugely from seeing more about the conditions and ground nearby.

Here's how it would work:

Dr Wolfgang Epple, director of research and technology for Jaguar Land Rover said in a press statement:

"We believe the next 25 years will be the most exciting and dynamic the automotive industry has ever experienced. There will be huge strides in environmental innovation, in safety and capability. "As our vehicles become more capable and autonomous off-road, we will ensure the driver has the confidence to allow the car to continue to progress, over any terrain. We are developing new technologies including the Transparent Bonnet to give drivers an augmented view of reality to help them tackle anything from the toughest off-road route to the tight confines of an urban car park."
