"High Beams on Weather..."

Geo-engineering involves the scientific intervention in climate systems to reduce global warming. Arresting global warming involves attempting to change weather. Carnegie Mellon University researchers presented an innovative weather controlling process. The team developed a car headlight that make raindrops, snow and hail invisible to the driver. Photonics.com reports that the invention cuts down on vision-impairing glare that occurs when light reflects off precipitation. In milliseconds the lights utilize a high-speed camera to detect the precipitation and where it will fall in the driver's view. The headlights create gaps within in the light beam and flicker at high speed to avoid hitting the precipitation. Driving in a thunderstorm allows the smart headlights to translate it to drizzle. Tests have removed 80% of visible precipitation at slow speeds.
