Mercedes creates invisible car, promotes green technology
Invisible Mercedes F- Cell car.

STUTTGART, GERMANY: Worldwide, motor vehicles currently emit over 900 million metric tonne of CO2 each year, amounting to more than 15 per cent of global fossil fuel CO2 releases. Major automobile manufacturers have been investing massively in developing more fuel efficient power systems and lower emissions. Mercedes has always made efforts in this direction, and the latest to come off their green platform is the Mercedes F-Cell Hydrogen. Mercedes is promoting the F-Cell hydrogen fuel cell technology in its cars.

A fuel cell powered vehicle, which boasts a 240 miles driving rage on a single tank of hydrogen and produces no emissions other than water vapour. Because of this, the company states that the car is ‘invisible’ to the environment. The company had an alternative solution to cloaking, and strapped the F-Cell car with LEDs all around one side of it, while on the other side a camera was installed. As the camera captured the view from the right side, it was projected through the LED display on the other side, making it blend with its surroundings, although still fairly noticeable, but maybe it’s exactly this that makes it so charming.
