Ford patenting car with an inbuilt projector

Ford is patenting a car with an inbuilt projector.

The multinational automaker have filed a patent within the United States for a vehicle which includes a projector in the boot lid, perfect for watching a movie with friends.

It would only be allowed to be used when the vehicle was stationary and it would project an image onto a screen set up outside the car.

In documents submitted, Ford writes: "In addition to being relied upon for transportation, automobiles are increasingly being used as entertainment accessories for tailgating, camping, and other outdoor activities. Present disclosure includes, among other things, a liftgate rotatable between a closed position and an open position, and a video projector mounted to the liftgate. Further, the video projector is configured to project video in a direction away from the vehicle when the liftgate is in the open position."
