There's not much that empowers the average driver to share the road more safely with trucks, beyond the usual "how am I driving?" bumper stickers. But Samsung's new Safety Truck is a different story, with a front-facing camera that projects the road ahead on the back of its trailer.

The prototype is currently being tested in Argentina, where someone dies nearly every hour in a traffic accident. Samsung says that it is "working together with safe driving NGOs and the [Argentinian] government" to get the permits and approvals needed to get this onto the roads.
