Safer driving by light bending materials
Everyone who drives a car knows the feeling. "OMG! I didn't see that person behind the [A] pillar."
Well, Toyota has been working on a solution. In a recently published patent application (US 2017/0227781 A1), Toyota describes using light bending materials to make car pillars appear invisible. I hope Toyota quickly commercializes this technology, and that Toyota will license the technology so that everyone can benefit.
