I'm sorry, but that's one of the most hideous looking contraptions I've ever seen...IMHO. I'm all for saving the planet but hopefully there's a better way.

I personally really like the visibility that cockpit gives. Think about it...once you get used to it, it would be pretty sweet to be sitting in the middle of the lane, with glass pretty much all the way around. The view to the left of the truck would be a bit worse, but offset by a much better view to the right side. Both could be easily improved with camera monitoring/ appropriate mirrors.

I've flown in small planes with "glass panel controls"--love the concept. Don't bother watching the gauges so close...if anything goes out of range the display goes yellow or red on that section and flashes the warning at you. I like gauges, but I have to admit that the glass panel systems I've seen were better by far for displaying information and usability.

WE'll just have to see how this concept goes. My guess is the bulk of drivers will refuse to accept it because its "different" --mostly because it will make backing to the "near side" somewhat more difficult.

No camper at present.

Way too many farm machines to maintain.
