Yeah, obviously no one really needs it but I think Elon put it best when Jay Leno asked him something like, "Armor glass? I mean, why would anyone want that?"Some have said armored glass is a pointless feature for a passenger vehicle. Elon joked that it badass and great for the apocalypse. I would say it's also beneficial for the times when lightning sends "the road" through the cab of a truck.
It is not just intention deeds that can hurt you. There are plenty of accidental events that could ruin your day or kill you.Armor glass is highly needed in places like Mexico, I lived in Mexico a few years and I know for a fact it is extremely dangerous especially for tourists, I saw many people get killed unofficially at the hands of corrupt cops the number one reason is theft. Base on a freedom index, Mexico is not the worst place, that puts armor glass useful in about half of the planet.
Well that settles it... I'm not leaving the house until my CT arrives.-----------------------------------------
Exactly. When you fire a bullet into bulletproof glass, it shatters one layer at least, but the bullet doesn't penetrate. That's considered successful. I'd say Cyberglass shattering was unexpected, but it successfully stopped the steel ball.Right? IDK how that snippet got posted.
You make a great point! Like a fire sprinkler system doesn’t stop fire neither. Just allow escape. It did hold up. Driver would escape due to Armor Glass.
Exactly. Any other auto glass would have likely had the bearing in the seats.Failed? Did balls penetrate?
I am not worried about specks or scratches.The biggest advantage of the glass over others is that it will shrug off most things which would scratch normal glass. More and more auto glass is laminated, and will stop things from penetrating. But this will refuse to be abraded. No more windshields with little flecks and stars. At least, hopefully.
