#254: Moving pictures

One of the biggest downsides of public transport (buses, planes, trains and even ships) is that passengers don’t get to see where they are going.

This is a particular worry for people who get travel sick, but it would be cool for everyone if they could look ahead as the driver, pilot or helmsman can. Commuting would thus have some small element of a funfair ride.

So, today’s invention is to attach a camera to the front of these vehicles and project the forward-looking image onto a number of curtains placed at intervals along the inside.

The imagery might have to be scaled down for screens towards the rear -to ensure no mismatch between side views via the windows and the frontal projection.

This would increase the premium of forward-facing seats (which might even be charged for at a higher rate).
