Now how about this for a bit of smart thinking to solve a problem using a simple solution…

transparentius view

This is an artist’s impression of the Transparentius Road View Transmitting System Concept by Art. Lebedev a Russian design studio.

Thanks to their size, trucks can often mask the view of the road in front of them, making it harder for drivers to establish whether it’s safe to pass them.  The Transparentius concept elegantly solves this by using a camera mounted at the front of the cab to broadcast video that is then displayed on the rear doors using a projector.

Don’t know about  you, but Tachoblog thinks this is a great idea.
