Holographic Logos Patented By Ford And Lincoln
And they look absolutely epic.
As reported by CarBuzz, American automakers Ford and Lincoln have just patented holographic logos. According to the patent, the projections themselves will appear on water.
The listing says that “it relates to a holographic projection system and method for a vehicle. It has been recognized that there is a need for a holographic projection system and method for a vehicle, which can help vehicle users find their vehicle easily, especially in the case of cloudy, night or other low light conditions."
The holographic logo system consists of three parts: a projection device, a water mist generating device, and a controller. The water itself can be collected using a valve or through condensation.
According to the patent, the hologram system can also be at the bonnet ornament or on top of the vehicle. What’s especially interesting is the fact that drivers may also be able to project images of their own choice using the system.
Though plenty of thought has gone into this idea and despite there being a patent for it, there is no guarantee this feature will ever make its way to production vehicles.
