I’ve been talking about this forever, and even wrote about it three years ago.
My neck of the woods is often cold and snowy, and nothing is more frustrating on a cold winter day than scraping the ice from the windows of the car. A small degree of vibration would certainly help break up the ice, especially when it’s thick.
Now, some obviously astute students from MIT must have seen my former blog post, and actually built one of these a few months ago. So you can file this one under “Done.”
My only criticisms? 1. The handle is too big and cumbersome. This contraption doesn’t need a lot of power to be effective; think smaller. 2. I’m not given credit for this invention, even though clearly the idea was mine.
