Yeah man. I'm really curious now to find out exactly what they're doing and if they even have a patent.

A stealthier V1, Redline or STI (wait, that would be the STI-R) would be nice. But not required. I have ideas for how I would do it, like mount several separate radar and (miniature) laser "antenna" all around outside the vehicle. I don't design these things though. I only dream of the perfect detector, which doesn't, and probably never will, exist.
