LG developed a transparent antenna for car windshields or sunroofs.

The company’s “film-type antenna” will work either attached to glass or built into it and supports 5G, Wi-Fi, and navigation using GNSS. LG says this will free carmakers from designing and building custom housing for traditional antennas.

LG didn’t say in its announcement when the tech will appear in cars, but it plans to show it off at CES in January.

A picture of a car with two small rectangles circled at the top of the windshield, and several bubbles illustrating the types of connection it can support.
LG’s transparent antennas can catch all these bubbles.
