Luxury and…a cloaking device?


Much as I hate to be a sucker for someone else’s marketing, this is just too cool.

[As] part of a marketing plan to call attention to its zero-emissions F-Cell model, the German marque swathed a side of one in LEDs to give it the ultimate in camouflage. You see, in addition to that makeshift display, a Canon 5D Mark II was mounted on the other side of the car so that video of its surroundings could be shown on the LED bodywork — rendering the car all but invisible to onlookers, as long as they’re staring at the left side, of course. Go ahead, head on down to see the magic of digital camo for yourself in the video after the break.
