Anti-rain windshield

Rain lowers the visibility of the driver, which can impact the safety, it also makes a lot of noise when the droplets fall on the windshield. Imagine a car that has the ability to repel the rain drops. Even in the biggest storm, nothing touches your windshield, you can clearly see where the vehicle is going, and it remains perfectly silent. Just not sure how to prevent the droplets to fall on the car: some sort of magnetic / electrical field? New type of material?

Your idea is to repulse rain from to car to enhance visibility and safety. If we imagine a car that repel things from the environment, what other things could the car repel and what for ?
