    At least when those windscreen washing bastards who get you at traffic lights will be ****ed, should put 2000 volts through them as well.

    This just means dogs are going to go bat crazy chasing your car with it making sounds at 30khz. Thankfully it should be fast enough to not be a problem unless you stop at traffic lights :)

    Well it didn't made success in washing machines 20 years ago (laundry detergent companies didn't let it), maybe now this type of technology becomes more widespread

    Pushing technology is good.

    But I wish McLaren could push technology like they did with the legendary F1.

    Like make a mach 2 land-plane using a Petrol/Diesel engine.

    I'd love to see what happens when you're in a thunderstorm and the system fails.

    I would suggest it would bring a new meaning to blue screen of death wonder if words appear on screen informing you of crash

    Wipers can and do fail during thunderstorms too. Nothing is foolproof.
