How cool would this be for a road trip!

When I was a kid on road trips my brother and I would get bored and end up blowing on the glass to fog them up and playing hangman or tic-tac-toe. In the future kids won't need foggy windows to play a game; they can just use the windows themselves. GM is showing off a new concept that turns the rear windows of the car into displays that can show games and other moving content.

This sounds farfetched to me right now, but with tech changing so quickly it might not be long before this is real. The idea is that the windows would be able to show apps for the passengers to enjoy. Students at the Future Lab at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Israel designed the apps.

The apps include Otto with an animated character that passes over scenery. Foofu makes colored steam on the windows and lets kids draw on the window. Spindow is an app that lets users peek into windows around the globe. Pond is an app that allows sharing and streaming of music. GM has no intentions of using windows lie this any time soon. This will probably be the stuff of concept for a long time to come.
