i looked into this a while back too.. 3m do a privacy filter that lets the inside of the car be visable at certain angles only.. looking straight on into the car you see a black window... I've still got all the write up about it as well as another company that make another type of self tinting glass that uses electronic pulses to turn the windows jet black at the touch of a button

I'd like my car to drive itself so I can fall asleep.

Yeah that would be handy too Steve, lol

Joao, i was just thinking, what if one day your driving along after you've had the glass installed and a stone flies up and smashes your windscreen, or a side window ? how much would it be to get another one made :S

I have to insurance the glass, but I'm not going to do that.
In case something will happen to it, I just will have to buy a new one.

It's probably cheaper to save money for it every month and put it on my saving account then paying insurance for it every year.
How big is the risk that it will happen, I think extreemly small....specially because I hardly drive my KITT anymore.

Only when someone comes to visit me to look at my KITT and also likes to make a little cruise with it (with me behind the wheel ofcourse).
Futher I don't drive it anymore.

I think the glass is based on the same technology as those LCD clocks, you know the ones that are clear perspex until you put the battery on it then the numbers appear in black.

That's a really cool idea. I remember the Self tinting glass from years ago when i first became available. it works by introducing an electrical charge to polerise the molecules or something like that if i remember correctly.

On the note of the ATM, someone has already done that so it despensdes monopoly money. Can't remember who though but i'm sure he posted a Youtube vid of it.

On the note of the laser, i've been toying with a few ideas. Smile
