McLaren to replace windshield wipers with force fields
High-performance vehicle manufacturer, McLaren Automotive, is planning to replace windshield wipers on their future supercars with force fields made of sound.
According to Geek.com, the English automotive company will replace the wipers with a new system that blasts 30kHz of ultrasound waves across the windshield to repel rain, snow, insects, and any form of lightweight debris. With that installed, drivers can start enjoying the benefits of not having to worry about maintaining any wipers or getting distracted by it while driving in bad weather.

No mention on when McLaren will start implementing the said technology but you can expect it add more weight on the price of an already super expensive sports car. Now if they can just apply that force field thing to the entire car, that would be great.
