Airstream Wiper

When traditional car wiper functions the wiper itself may interfere driver’s sight. To solve this by redesign the car wiper, the Airstream Wiper shooting an a layer of airstream from the bottom of the windshield form a barrier of air to “wipe” the raindrops and to clean dust.
The flowing air can change the moving path of the object. The faster the air moves, the greater the energy is. The jet airflow can isolate some objects.The air stream wipe can shot jet speed airflow from the bottom of the windshield pushing the raindrops away. Thus the airflow forms an invisible barrier.
