    Anyone ever think of this?

    Some newer cars or concept cars (i don't remember where I saw/read it) have displays that project onto the actual windshield. Anyway can we work with that or something similar to project smaller screens onto a window or windshield. OR maybe night vision or rear view camera onto a portion of our windshield.

    anyways, just a thought.

    i was just in a 2004 grand prix that had this. looked pretty cool. it said the speed and temp. you can turn off the dash lights and just cruise with that on the windshield. i have no idea how to incorporate that with a computer

    Have a search around, I have seen some stuff on the site about people considering this, I don't think anyone has succeeded though.

    If you wonder down this topic about 5-7 threads you'll see one that shows what a HUD looks like in a car, im not sure if they built that one professionally, or if it was some guy's project. Looks pretty good though.
