While I was in traffic this morning, I was pondering the fact that I really don’t like being stuck behind a truck or other large vehicle, in stop-and-go traffic. I realized that I really like to be able to see what’s coming up on the road, and what to expect. So maybe, when video technology gets cheap enough, we can start mounting big video screens to the back of these trucks, which display an image from a camera in the front of the truck. That way, I could see what was coming up even when I’m stuck behind the big-ass semi. That would be cool.
Of course, once you’ve got those big displays mounted, I suppose it would only be a matter of time before they started using them for advertising… <sigh>
