As you might have noted, carburetors have been phased out. Computer systems also used in automobiles to perform a wide range of functions. Also phased out over the years is manual transmission, which is now only available in select cars and heavy trucks. The focus has now shifted to auto windshields. While this auto glass is meant to protect the driver from oncoming winds, the elements and flying debris while providing maximum visibility, researchers want to make car windshields more than just auto glass that protect drivers from the elements and flying debris. Click through to read some new windshield technologies that will amaze you.
We often take our windshields for granted until they suddenly get damaged and we are forced to weigh the consequences. Even small airborne particles can hit the glass with significant impact. Some are lucky enough to walk away with minor chipping. This can be fixed quickly through professional repair work. Others are not as fortunate as their cracked windshield has signs of extensive damage. Repair will not do because this kind of situation calls for a replacement. Many car owners put off repairing or replacing their windshield because they feel that it can wait or it is unimportant. However, as this article discusses, your windshield acts as more than a barrier against the elements of nature.
