Recommended Posts

Overtaking a huge lorry is a nerve-wracking and potentially lethal challenge for motorists.

Now the tech giant Samsung has unveiled a life-saving solution - a see-through lorry which shows drivers the road ahead.

The incredible Safety Truck has a camera fitted to its front which sends real time footage to a screen on the back of the vehicle.

huh - this is really interesting!

​It kind of makes you wonder what else they're thinking of doing, doesn't it? lol

Seriously though, this is an example of tech used for good. But then there's the questions of whether they are recording everything and where that might be going and the fact that they're probably only doing it because it will save the company money by keeping them out of monetary claims when there's an accident.
