    Cool idea. Won't go over well here. Samsung made it. It will be a failure or is stupid.

    A few years ago some guy implemented wearable version of this, so he looked like he had a big hole right through his torso.

    Of course, because it will run on Android. ;)

    How long before someone hacks it and figures out a way to stream something other than the feed from the front of the truck? Once that happens, people won't WANT to pass the truck, provided the person that changed the feed picks something good...

    Maybe a good movie, but they might miss their turn off.

    Won't be long before they turn it into a billboard!

    Goddammit, I was actually interested in this idea until now.

    I guess it's not impossible for an 'opaque' truck to be a billboard, though.

    I hate to be so cynical but it seemed like there was more to the story than road safety... and then you nailed it!
