Objects In Windshield Are Slower Than They Appear

It's Not The Traffic, It's The Appearance Of Traffic

Remember those old movies with the rapidly shifting landscape or street on a projected window in a studio mockup of a car?

When in traffic, project beatiful visions of a pristine landscape zipping by at 80 MPH on side windows and portions of windshield.

       Have antelopes and herds of elephants charging by in a storm of dust, that would be pretty cool considering you would only see them overtaking you from the side and never see them up front.

       I think bikers and cyclists have enough trouble being seen as it is.

       This would only be on while the car was stopped.

       Haven't we done this before? I remember suggesting film of roller-coaster rides or some such.

       I thought so too, but all I can find is some discussion of doing this in the rear window in one of my ideas. See link.

       Look at the linked video -- this is someone driving using a video game interface -- which in turn is using video input.

       Whereas when you're zipping along at 80mph through a pristine and beautiful landscape, the projected image of a slow-moving traffic jam obscures your view of fist-shaking locals and the moose you're about to hit.
