A relaxing scenic drive in the country on a long and winding road can come to an abrupt halt when you find yourself staring at the back of a road hogging semi-truck. The frustration builds as you try to peek around the truck’s bed to see if there is an opportunity to pass.

Those days may soon be over when this new design from Russian Designer, Art Lebedev gets implemented. The Transparentius is a road safety concept consisting of a camera mounted on the front of a truck that projects the images it ‘sees’ to the back truck panel. It’s like being able to see right through the truck!

Many vehicles are already equipped with cameras for safety and even insurance reporting purposes, so don’t be surprised if you see this on trucks, quite literally in the near distance.
