Author's Note: How an Electronic Sun Visor Works

As best as I could tell, it seems like auto researchers have decided sun glare just isn't that much of a problem anymore. Projects in development appear to have been abandoned, and sun visors don't seem much more advanced than they did the last time I drove a new car. The sun's still there, so it's hard to figure out why auto manufacturers think drivers no longer need glare protection. It's probably worth mentioning that anti-glare features on tablets and e-readers is rather impressive now, though -- we certainly don't recommend reading in traffic, but it would probably be easier on the eyes.
