Holy High Beam

To let the blinded man see.

High beams often blind oncoming traffic, yet are very useful to the driver. Until the IR cameras + HUD thingy is completed, i advocate another approach: cameras with onboard intelligence (cmos+fpga) track oncoming traffic, and a lcd in the light's path blots out the light in direction of other headlights.

Adjusts distance, doesn't block out with LCD or anything. [jutta, Jan 19 2009]

       I like it - looks like Merc stole your theme, or the other way around. I see what you're wanting to do here, but with the LCD blotting array, you could do so much more... 'steering sensetive' lighting etc.   

       Let's just hope the other guys have their headlights on so the camera can see them, otherwise they'll be blind (teach 'em a lesson though)!

       Lobeth thee thine holy...nah, it doesn't work.

       gr. "lobbest thou thy"   

       '-eth' is a third-person verb ending.
'Thee' is to 'thou' as 'me' is to 'I'.
'Thine' (usually) corresponds to 'yours', not to 'your'.
  

       No wonder //it doesn't work//. ;)
