    Lightbulb LCD In Your Body

    Has anyone seen or heard of wiringin an LCD into say a door panel, putting a strong piece of glass over it and sealing it on the egdes with some urathane and a nice black band? My father owns an autoglass shop so I have done a lot of cutting glass. I have also seen people put "peep" windows in the doors like you see in the big trucks.

    Anyway, I was thinking, if you could make this work you could build a program that was a marque style image that could be a substitue for a metal emblem or even a real licence plate. What if you put a LCD at every place on your car where there is an emblem or somthing....you could do neat special efects with it as you drive down the road and when the car is shut off everything on the outside of the car would go dark. Also you could park it at shows and do cool things with it.

    I am probably talking about somthing someone else has already done, patented the idea, started a buisness, and become a pro at it! If anyone knows of a site or anything about it please let me know.

    Thanks and have a great day!

    I've seen it done somewhere. Although it's pretty cool. I think it's pretty useless. Just my 2 cents

    still have not found any pics or anything...but have been talking to some friends..not really any street use...have to watch for sun, cold, and stuff like that.

    Is there any way to "bend" an LCD screen so that it goes witht he curve of the body?

    i believe it can, it would be a lot of work...but like you said, you have to worry about the elements...water would be no problem, it can be sealed off with the glass but sun/heat would ruin it, even if it was heavy duty i think the heat from direct sun would kill it. maybe im wrong.

    I had thought about mounting one 10" on each of my rear passanger windows, you wont really be able to see them through the tint unless they are on ( I allready tried it with a 7") I was just going to have them on at car shows or other events. I though it would be cool to run an animation of my system features like a guided tour.

    For a daily driver I think it would be rather useless like a big wing on a front wheel drive Honda but it would look cool.
