  1. Handy Andy says:

    This is very good voor safety as you can see oncoming traffic when you want to overtake the truck.

    See, art is not just form, it can also be about function. I like it!

  2. Chris W says:

    This is just an art project. Very dangerous. People would be staring at it because of the novelty, and trying to take pictures of their friends who are driving in front of the truck.
    What kind of projector is durable enough for daily road use?

  3. pff says:

    I would like to see where a projector would mount so as not to be obstructed by cargo.

  4. Jiun says:

    This would make the truck harder to see

    which means it would make it far more unsafe
