Augmented Reality Lets Cars Communicate To Reduce Road Rage

Great, now instead of getting into a road rage incident, you will die from a distracted driving accident. Also, people that road rage don't care one bit about "reasons." Just sayin'.

His prototype “social car” project puts a transparent screen in front of the driver on a section of windscreen that displays projected information from a smartphone, augmenting the driver’s view without blocking it. The app flashes up information about other drivers using the system when the phone’s camera spots their cars. A special periscope lens attachment allows the camera to see cars in front of the driver while it is lying flat to project images onto the screen.
