Latest Tech for HUD Development
I thought it was time that a new HUD thread be opened, as the older two and almost dead, and I want this thread to focus on new technologies on the horizon. For instance, no one on the forum has mentioned using newest projectors available, those being the new laser-based pico projectors from Microvision and AXXA.
As I understand the current state of affairs, full color HUDs are not really feasible, because the requirement to back-light and LCD causes too much picture loss and distortion as the image reaches the windshield. Well, pico-projectors do not suffer from that problem. They also allow infinite focusing, which I remember one poster noting as an advantageous system for HUDs.
So, how about it? Can we get all the big thinkers back in this thread discussing this?
Lastly, I would like any source referenced to be included in your posts. The last two HUD threads made it very difficult to track down the films that people were talking about.
