This idea is sort of the opposite of old Hollywood movies, wherein footage of passing scenery was projected from the back windows of otherwise motionless 'cars'.
In this incarnation, a flexible screen is placed under the front windshield, but inside the car, so that motionless drivers can reenact
long drives from history (videos of which are legion on Youtube, etc.) without even starting the engine.
Likewise, a smaller version could be used to play back videos of drives you've already taken and want to take again, for very literal drivers who need very literal landmarks as they are literally driving.
||Not sure I love the title, but I really love the idea. So much
||I see this as being useful in self-driving cars, in
which a view of a road might be projected onto the
screen which is more beautiful than the actual view
of the road on your regular commute.
||...but you would, of course, match the projected road
to the actual road by having the projection system do
some very clever real-time editing
||Mostly baked for race tracks. Some Formula 1 drivers
practice on simulator set-ups; wouldn't take much to rig it
inside an actual car.
