Where We're Going, We Don't Need Ford's In-Car Movie Projector
Ford's new patent looks like the company wants to put a drive-in theater in self-driving cars.By Leah Becerra | March 9, 2016
If we're going to have autonomous cars someday, we're obviously going to need a way to watch movies or TV shows while the car does the driving.
Ford nabbed a patent March 1 describing one way screens in self-driving cars could work, but it doesn't seem like the best way to get the job done.
The patent describes an entertainment system with a screen that drops down from the ceiling in the front of the vehicle and a projector that may also be mounted to drop from the car's ceiling. So it's like a drive-in movie for the interior of the car.
