    Good idea, but not new.
    Long implemented in aircraft.
    Well, eh, I'm rather trying to adapt the simple version of existing tech, instead of pretending having invented something on my own.

    Limited hobbyist implementation in vehicles. (Speedos & tachos etc are often done with ordinary 7-segment LEDs (after swapping b-c & f-e segments, and maybe adding a sticky label to limit dual-reflections).)
    There's too much limitations to this approach. What I want is augmented reality rather. Say, like blend the navigator and cameras (thermal, rear view when looking back) into the actual picture into an augmented reality system. I don't really care about the sensors, they would distract too much.

    Infinite focus has been done though I haven't seen it on public forums (like this...). Occasionally done in conjunction eyeball tracking.
    Without eyeball problem, there's a lot of pulically available solutions for aircrafts, got a lot of them today.

    PS (after Soundman's reply below - agreeing that (infinite) focus usually isn't required) - zonal or range focus (which is usually limited to 10m/30' virual) has more application or use than infinite focus.
    Dunno, it's probably easier to collimate the rays and make an infinite focus image, and besides anything further 10-20m is pretty much an infinity for eyes, am I not right?

    Got another idea though, leaving behind the visibility to others and focus problems. Picture related:

    Still I have little worries about eyeball movement and if I would fry my eyes out with this contraption. But overally seems easy and cheap to implement.

    if you have a smartphone, why don't you just try putting it on your dash facing the windshield. it'll be a quick test and easily implemented if it worked.

    if it does work then you have a bunch of options out there for relatively inexpensive 4.3" screens.

    the trick is to reverse the image though.
