Problems faced while repeatedly adjusting the visor annoyed Bosch group engineer Ryan Todd, leading to the idea of creating a sun visor. The idea of a sun visor struck him when he was thinking about what kind of television he wanted for his living room. One option was an LCD screen TV, which had properties to solve his sun visor problem.
Todd took the idea of LCD as it works on the principle of selective blocking of light. According to reports, Todd, along with a small team of engineers, including Jason Zink, a Bosch technical expert, started working on the idea of creating a sun visor, the obstructs glare and without blocking more of the view.
