Jaguar Land Rover just unveiled the latest concept for its “Virtual Urban Windscreen” technology, which uses external cameras on the outside of a car to give the driver a full 360-degree view around — and through — the interior.

In addition to letting drivers see through windshield and window separation pillars via embedded screens — which virtually eliminate blind spots — the company wants to expand the augmented reality windscreen to display information about surroundings, navigation and more.

A video released by Jaguar Land Rover this week shows the transparent pillars activating automatically in response to the driver turing his head, and navigating to his destination by following a “ghost car” generated on screen.

The technology is still in research and development, and Jaguar Land Rover has not released a speculative date for when we might see it in future models.
