Default Good bye, windshield wipers

Sports car maker reportedly developing system that clears moisture using high-frequency sound waves.

Automakers are increasingly using technology to do away with traditional car parts ranging from rearview mirrors to mechanical steering linkage, in part to save weight and thereby increase fuel efficiency or performance. And also because, well, they can.

I saw this recently and am curious to see if this technology will ever come to fruition. If they do get something going, I want to see it tested in a place like Orlando in Summertime. I just don't believe anything can displace white-out rain falling like buckets on your car's windshield like a wiper can.

if the tech is too expensive, it won't fly for most cars

All I know is I will never get into one of those cars that literally drive themselves.
