    Haven’t seen any designs with them, even though I assume they will be added seamlessly. Thoughts? Heard anything?

    Not that it will replace wipers, but I am a firm believer in Rain-X. Doesn’t work that well at low speeds but at highway speeds, it’s like magic, It’s like the rain isn’t even hitting.

      I agree with Paul about Rain-X and I’m also a big fan of RejeX polish: It makes bug-splatter rinse off!

    Just as they do on most automobiles, the windshield wipers will rest in the vent trough below the windshield. This was discussed quite some time ago and, I believe, is included in the FAQ.

      I’ll add my Rain-X vote. Been useful over the years.

        I’ve been fan for years as well…don’t think there’ll be rear hatch wiper (if don’t go with solar), so that may be another application location.

      Kerbe was spot on! The answer to the question on the Old FAQ spreadsheet, “What about windshield rain wipers?”, was “Yes, the vehicle will have windshield wipers.”

      Paul K’s point is excellent. I don’t know how one can ever go wrong with Rain-X. I’m guessing the speed threshold for effectiveness will be much lower for the Aptera owing to its laminar flow. Bonus points to the Paradigm owner who documents an “A/B” test! ????

    are there wipers for cameras? i think teslas laser wipers were really about burning away sticking mud snow water by aiming laser through lens so non areodynamics wipers arnt needed, camera can be pretty small. doubt laser is more efficient than wiper even if either system is running all the time in a given time.
