Was raining on my drive to work this morning. Turned wipers on. And then it dawned on me that windshield wipers don’t work all that well. High speed = better performance, but you’re looking at the wipers all the time. Low speed = less performance, but you don’t have to look at the wipers as much. And all too often, the wipers are old, and performance suffers as a consequence.
With all the advancements made in technology for motor vehicles, I was wondering why no one has invented a high tech alternative to windshield wipers. Like a special glass that you can easily see through even when it’s raining. Or some way to keep the rain drops off the glass (electrostatic repulsion?) in the first place.
(FTR, I have tried Rain-X[sup]TM[/sup]. Didn’t like it.)
