I came up with this idea a while back and I decided to see if they were already available commercially. I found this website:

There always seems to be that one little piece of ice that never melts no matter how hot the car gets so there is a constant streak across your windshield!

I'd like to have a defroster grid for my wiper blades. I bet it would make them last longer from not being forced while frozen to the glass or having to scrape across rough ice buildup. Has anyone done this to any car? Thoughts?

It gets that cold in Tennessee? I thought only the north had to deal with this kind of problem.

Sure it does. I live in the northeast corner of the state so I'm surrounded by mountains. We get snow every year. Sometimes more than others but this year we had a pretty big snow and had about a foot on the ground at one point. That may not sound like much but keep in mind that all of our roads are curvy and hilly. Also that we don't have much in the way of public transportation so EVERYONE who needs to go somewhere is out on the road. The City, County, and State doesn't keep much in the budget for scraping, plowing, salting, etc. The roads will get plowed eventually but they can only do so much so fast. Until then, we are on our own.

I've lost count how many times that's happened! It always seems like when you come up with a great idea, it's already been done. Maybe that validates that it was a good idea? One day... I'll come up with something first.

This seems pretty logical. I'm thinking that if you measured out the length correctly, this could also double as a FM radio antenna, though it would be fairly directionally.
