Autoglass 2020 Vision: Windshield of the future vehicles

Autoglass Company has thrown together this video demo of what it believes windshields of future vehicles will be like in 2020. This video clip shows what that windshield might look like from the driver’s seat. The 2020 windshield will offer intelligent location-based services that can hunt down pedestrians, gas stations and cyclists and also warns of speed cameras, pedestrians and an arrow even points to potential destinations.




Apparently, the futuristic, king-of-all-head-up-displays is not smart enough to know that the vehicle is driving on the wrong side of the road. There are also few distracting landmark indicators, along with links to the sound system of the vehicle to let you know what music you are listening to. As the Autoglass specializes in repairs of vehicles’ most important piece of glass (windshield) so there will be a hook into your mobile so that, in case of any damage to the vehicle, the windshield can automatically get alert a technician and tell them vehicle’s location.
In which vehicle you would like to watch the windshield of 2020 in action!

Japanese company Genepax unveals Water Fueled Car

Tired of Pumping expensive gasoline into your car?? Well one Japanese company Genepax has unvealed a car that runs on water in the western japanese city of Osaka. Using the company’s generating system, water is converted into electrical power. All you need is a litre of water – any kind of water to be exact, whether its river, rain, sea water or even japanese tea. It is said that it’s an electric powered car that runs solely on Hydrogen Dioxide


Chief Executive officer of Genepax Kiyoshi Hirasawa said, “ the main characteristic of this car is that no external input is needed. The car will continue to run as long as you have bottle of water to add in the car from time to time.”

According to Japanese broadcaster T.V Tokyo, once the water is poured into a water tank at the back of the car, the newely invented energy generator takes out the hydrogen from the water, releases electrons and finally generates electrical power.

“we highly recommend our system, since it does not require you to build up an infrastructure to recharge your batteries which is usually the case for most of the electric cars” said CEO Hirasawa.

According to Genepax, one litre of water keeps the car running for about an hour with a speed of 80 kilometers or 50 miles an hour. The company has just applied for a patent and is hoping to collaborate with japanese automobile manufacturers to mass manufacture their invention in the very near future.
