Teen Invents Device That eliminates blind spots


14-year-old Alaina Gassler, who lives just west of Philadelphia (born and raised on the playground is where I spent most of my days) came up with an invention that basically eliminates the blind spots in the car.  

She put a very small camera on the passenger's side of a car and linked it to a projector installed that projects live video right onto the blind spot. So it's like the support posts aren't even there. 

She actually entered her device into an engineering contest called the Broadcom Masters and won the grand prize of $25,000.

Now car companies are looking into offering it in their cars, and it could be available relatively soon.

She's not even old enough to drive.
