    Could this be how Primes trailers Stealth mode works? Anyway, I'm off to google to look for more pics.

    Edit.
    Bum couldn't find anything else. Lots of hot Sara Watsons though.

    But I dont think there could be other shots, this trick only works on one angle.

    That is indeed sweet!

    Reminds me of a thing I saw on Horizon a while back. The MOD were/are working on a camoflague system that projects an image of the objects surroundings onto itself. Sort of like FP's Prime trailer, but much fancier.

    Yeah, similar technology was shown on that 'Batteries Not Included' gadget show.

    If we ever get real invisible cars I hope it makes me invisible too. Don't want people able to see me scratching my nuts while waiting in traffic.

    I'll laugh when some one runs into her car thinking the space is open. She'd be at fault for the camouflage paint job most likely.

    It's most likely a closed off part of the lot if not a private lot or something. She'd had to have left her car there for a while to paint it all up like that.

    you know , i would not be the slighest bit surprised if it would eventually be possible to tweak and use nanotechnology in sucha way that it could be used as a type of programmable camaflague paint in the sense that it could programmed to act in such a way that it would flawlessly blend in to the immiedate background whatever vehicle it is used on
