Mercedes desired to make a remarkable statement about exactly how its new B-Class F-Cell vehicle passes through the environment without leaving a trace, so it put it behind an invisible LED curtain. We desired to (not?) see that for ourselves at the Paris Auto Tv show, so took a quick trip of the magic LED cloak and the modern technology behind it. It does not work fairly also in a tv show hall as it did when we first saw it in its natural habitat, but the system was still an enjoyable means to flaunt Merc’s green passions. It works by passing video from behind the vehicle taken with a Sony video camera through a laptop computer to a 200 x 300 resolution LED curtain. That makes the car blend in with its background, which is just what such an automobile would do in the real globe as far as its emissions go– apart from a little water, of course. See the video below for the complete technical explanation.
