A camera hack that transmitted images from the opposite side of the car
To demonstrate the zero carbon impact of its fuel cell vehicle, Mercedes-Benz made its car “invisible” with LEDs and a camera hack that transmitted images from the opposite side of the car, blending the vehicle in with its surroundings.
This creative hack conveyed the company’s message that its vehicle is invisible to the environment because it produces zero emissions. To carry out the marketing stunt, panels of LEDs were places across one side of the car and a Canon 5D Mark II digital SLR camera was mounted to the other side.
