Default New transparent hood technology for offroaders - Cool!

Check this out. Land Rover announces a concept vehicle with a "transparent hood" that allows you to see the ground under your vehicle as if the hood was transparent. We wont see this for a long time in a production vehicle but it is very cool.https://autos.yahoo.com/blogs/motora...5701.html?vp=1

Cool, definitely takes the wheel cameras to the next level. Will be good to see the rear in some fashion as well. I think it may be a scary sight for some on very technical trails, ignorance can be bliss

LOL. That might be true. My stomach turns enough already on some trails.
