    BTW, triple monitor display off a laptop is a frightening, yet exhilrating experience...well...no...but its is in the scheme of coolness factor cause i've never seen it before...i'll shut up now...

    My next quesiton is software. Does anyone know any good overlay/transperancy software available? See, what i want to do is have select GPS, or GPS and night vision, or NV alone.
    It was $8 something. It's 6x9 trapezoid shape. It'll end up cutting it down at some point. For those pics, I just layed the nitemax down and propped the glass on it at an angle. I don't think it would be that noticable, but not sure about daytime. The link is above in one of the the posts in this thread. Also got a mini laptop trackball and joystick, no datasheets though. But for a couple bucks it was worth it for experimenting.

    Can you do triple heads on a laptop? My laptop has two, but getting the second going with X is a PITA.

    I'll say that gamma is very helpful in getting images to display well as it tends to keep the blacks, black and boost everything else due to the curve.

    one of the docking sttatiosn i bought from an MP3car member has a built in ATI video card, if you can believe it (i got it for this project for the HUD use). Not the greatest, but its quite enough for DVDs and older games. then the regular notbook screen and the intel graphics extreeme software that gets you that last db15 head. Technically then its dual monitors and a built in display....psshhh, like i care.

    I dunno, maybe one day i should explain a bit of what i'm trying to do in a concise and coherant manner. lol...that won't be for a while. I'm hopigng you, fusion, and mark get this VGA mod working so i can save a few dollars on another LCD

    Link me man, i can spare $8 and change

    Found the following on the above linked website. Just thinking out loud, I spose using them would be a bit too advanced for most?

    You mean from the film or the windshield? Eitherway the answer is no, though I haven't done any day time experimentation with it yet.

    Interesting find. Don't know how I missed that. I got a bunch of odds and ends, don't remember seeing that though.

    So they could be usuable?? I think I found an even smaller one on there as well. IIRC, from when I read a 'How things work' guide the image is split into R G B and then shone at those mirrors? So we'd still have to find something to project the image?

    These are used in "DLP" Projection TVs and other Projectors. There's only one of them and a bright white bulb as the light source. Between the white light source and the chip is a RGB color wheel that spins very fast. The projector synchronizes itself to this wheel and "turns on" the pixels for each color as theat color is being created by the color wheel. In this way, the one (normally) expensive sensor can use an inexpensive white light bulb to create full-color images.

    Ahhhh, so it really would take some work to produce a HUD using one!
