Automobile Innovation of the Day: The Hood-Mounted Projector

Movie time, all the time.


Car ownership may be dying out in these parts, but let's see your bicycle do this. Mounted on the hood of the Smart Forstars, like a machine gun on a Rush 2049 car, is a Bluetooth-equipped projector that turns the nearest blank wall into a cinema.

That's the gimmick, but the car itself also has a transparent solar panel roof and plenty of other flashy design features. Smart calls it "sassy and friendly." It's electric. And, of course, you can park it practically anywhere.
