A transparent phone screen app has been created to prevent collisions. German Android application developer Sascha Affolter has created and released this transparent phone screen application in hopes that it will make the roads much safer for drivers. The application uses your smartphone camera to display an image of exactly what is going on behind your phone underneath your regular phone screen functions.

This application is not limited to being functional for in the car (you should not be texting and driving regardless), it is also very practical for everyday use. The transparent phone screen app could potentially save you the embarrassment of walking into posts, signs, walls, people and even potentially worse situations like traffic in busy areas.
