Driving a car without windshield wipers in the rain is an accident just waiting to happen. However, that won’t be the case with McLaren’s future vehicles because even though they won’t come with wipers, they’ll come installed with technology used in fighter jets that’ll keep windshields clear, even in the strongest of rains.
While the car manufacturer hasn’t unveiled too many details on the exact technology they’ll be using, experts suggest that the system will use high-frequency system that will course sound waves through the windshield. This movement will create a forcefield of sorts that will deflect rain, mud, and insects.
McLaren’s Frank Stephenson said: “I was told that it’s not a coating on the surface but a high-frequency electronic system that never fails and is constantly active. Nothing will attach to the windscreen.”
No more wiper blades. Now isn’t that something?
