Disappearing invisble Mercedes Benz cars is possible with innovative flexible LED technology.

LED technology exploded once again onto our TV sets, onto the stadium seats and to the enjoyment of many with the Spice Girls onto their cabs during the 2012 London Olympics. However earlier in March some else was demoed in the Germany market.

The use of LED screens on a vehicle’s exterior as a display surface is a relatively new concept made possible by a new generation of flexible rubber / magnetic LED tiles that are applied to the vehicles surface.

Here at ICE we have two new generation tile formats to assist the innovators, marketers and those who want to create unique visual experiences to create high quality images with either the P10 or P6mm tiles.

Rubber LED Tiles

The key is the ability to hold the tile in place by built in magnets that hold the tiles vertical in place and to curve around the side of the vehicle. Ideally the power to drive is from the vehicle helping to make it stand alone.

Recently German automotive maker Mercedes Benz used the tiles for great effect to launch their hydrogen fuel system technology when they placed the vehicle in public environs or driving down the road. When the screen was switched on, the vehicle disappeared by virtue of the camera on the on the other side of the vehicle that placed the view that the vehicle was obstructing  onto the screen in real time enabling the vehicle to blend into the environment.

So you have a great idea to create some immersive invisible cars or that matter any object? Essentially a starting point is a accurate plan drawing of the vehicle. This is then used to plan and calculate the mapping of the tiles over the vehicle, from that costs can be calculated.

Full demo kits are available for purchase consisting of all the components required for either 4 tile or 8 tile sets. Excludes the computer that you will need to supply.
