BTW, pics of the Corvette HUD are here.
I'm not that impressed.
No doubt that it could be compensated for, but I'm willing to bet that the cost and practicalliy would be prohibitive.
Not familar with the Corvette's setup, but with character based LCDs, distortion isn't that big of an issue. If you use individual segments, would be pretty easy to place them such they account for the distortion somewhat.
With a graphical hud, it's going to be very noticable. Designing an optic to account for the windshield shape at a given distance I would imagine would be tough by itself. Then you have to have someone actually produce it, at one off costs, sure it would be expensive.
it has a ghost as well. do ya'll think we should just try to minimize the ghost/align the two images?
if u use a polarized film on the windshield u have no ghosting and no double image. Unfortunately until now i was not able to find a clear polarized filter in a form of a film. All are kind of dark. I am trying to find the ones used on LCDs...Originally Posted by alpha_maverick

Both thanks to the website of linear1 of bit-tech.netPolarizing Film
Linear polarizer film by the foot:
$0.07 per square inch
Great for building large polariscopes to detect residual stress in glass and plastics!
Linear polarizer for LCDs with anti-glare and hard coat
New Lower prices for
Film with adhesive
Great for repairing LCDs (liquid crystal displays)!
Circular Polarizing film
Left and Right handedness!
unfortunately, all polarizing films will be dark(ish) the lighter they are, the less effective at polarizing they will be.

Just thought to post in addition to the Corvette HUDs...
