The techno geek community is abuzz with the news that McLaren’s chief designer, Frank Stevens, has hinted that they are looking to replace the venerable rubber windshield wiper with an invisible ultrasonic force field that will deflect rain, snow and insects away from the glass.

Several tech websites, including Geek.com, are currently speculating about how the system would work and listing the many advantages that such a system would offer. These include better aerodynamics, lack of smearing and smudging and an end to those pesky jerks at the mall who like to stuff fliers under your wipers while you are shopping. Although owning a McLaren is out of reach for most us in the proletariat the expectation is that once the technology is fully developed it will trickle down market in due time.
