Using this concept the A columns of the vehicle can be made transparent. Likewise the rear view of the vehicle can be a small lens opening on the rear and a large internal Fresnel. A stretch would be to make much of the doors, dash, transparent as well. Would be fun to experiment with the limits of what can be achieved.
I don't have a technical background in optics. Interested in hearing from anyone who knows if this will work as imagined. : )
