Jaguar Land Rover is adding a bunch of new features to its navigation that seem very state of the art, or even futuristic.

The new features include projecting a camera feed on the roof pillars to give you a 360 degree view of what's going on and eliminating your blind spots, and projecting a ghost car in front of you to make navigation easier.

The pillars would each be outfitted with a screen embedded under the pillar's surface. A live video feed would be displayed on each pillar. The system would be activated every time the car reaches an intersection or the driver indicates a change in movement by turning his head. The Head-Up display would also highlight other road users with an on-screen halo that moves across the car's virtual screen.

The ghost car system would project an image of a vehicle in front of the driver for them to follow. The idea is to make navigation easier by not having to look at a separate screen.

Check out the system in action in the video below.

I think that the "invisible" pillars are really cool. Its a great idea. I want to see it in real life to see how well it would actually work in the middle of driving, but it looks very promising.
