HELMET HUD WHAT NEXT?
- WARNING PLEASE FOLLOW ARROWS TO AVOID IMPACT
with the release on to the market of the stuff fighter pilots dream of http://www.sportvue.com/ the next question is where does it go to from here? with the display capable of speed rpm and gear postion and the system web site also linking to a datalog site that sells systems with logging capabilites one can only guess if the manufactuers are going to release an api and developers resource for the intent of developing easy to use customizable displays.
some ideas that go past simple text based data is the deployment of a full vga color display with the ability to link to various systems that may or may not include
radar postioning (arrows show gaps in traffic big enough to avoid accidents)
predestrian alert icons (instant alert of human sized targets entering from the side.
rear vision systems (incorporated into the helmet set)
ful gps nav maps
rider vital signs for racing and endruance riding.
The list goes on.
(note the photo shows sportvues product and is there as a news item only, not as an implication that they are involved with s2c ideas or theology but hey they are cool systems and I want one or two...3-4.)
