Land Rover's "Transparent bonnet"

This is one of the most amazing thing I have seen in a long time.

Thanks to cameras pointed at the ground, and an image projected on the windshield, you could now actually see through the hood of the car.
Which could be very useful in 4WD driving. A great idea for  Land Rover.

I just wonder if there might be other applications for "normal" cars as well.

Most new cars have A pillars so thick that you can miss a pedestrian. Combined with large sideview mirrors they can block-out an entire vehicle! A system like this would really help.

This would be a great feature in the new Discovery. But I have a Range Rover, and I can't imagine doing any major boulder hopping in it. That's something for the second or third owners. Frankly, Land Rovers are so unreliable, I doubt a system like this would actually work properly for that long.
