WIPERS

Here's a thought people....

Since Ford Model T to Bugatti Veyron and u-turn with a Tata Nano...our cars have come a long way. From 3 Cylinders to V12 Turbo charged engines...and from brake drums to ceramic disc brakes, we've been through a lot. The automobile technology has evolved faster than the human race ever did.
But there is one thing that has stayed as it is...the way it was on the first day. That is, the wiper. No, I am not talking about the Dodge Viper. I mean that sleek black thing that pretends to cleans your windshield. Just take a moment and think about it, we have heard people appreciating various cars for various reasons... like a gearbox, acceleration, dashboard, seats, the grills on the bonnet, turbo charger, sleek body lines, brakes, alloys, huge windscreen, engine, seat belts, door handles...etc etc. But have you ever heard anyone talking about a car's wipers? No. Simply because there is nothing to talk about it. The wiper on an Indian Autorickshaw is more or less the same as the one that's there on a Mercedes expect for Autorickshaws have only one and Merc. has two. Ok maybe not, maybe a bit different, but not much, looks and works in the same way.

I simply, can't accept the fact that even after all this technological advances, we haven't been able to improve the design of a wiper.

Wonder why Formula One cars don't have a wiper...? Not because they don't have a windshield, but because they were embarrassed that they being what they are - 'the F1' ....couldn't make a better wiper, and so they scrapped the idea of windshield and wipers all together.

Why can't there be a car which can be admired for its wipers?

@meeta ...thnx

@Arti ...yes not much difference between the two. Considering the vast differences in the interiors or machine or acceleration....there is hardly anything to choose from in terms of wipers...think of it.
