Heads-up displays coming

Well, check out the article on New York Times online (free registration required) that talks about the coming of HUDs. I, for one, would like to have one, and at $250-$350, that's perfect Christmas gift range for my wife.

The questions in my mind will be compatibility and wind noise.

I dont want to register to view the article. Is this the helmet attatchment for the sort of see through info screen in front of the visor, sort of like a helicoptor pilot would wear? Can you post a pic or the article?

Copyright laws probably cant, or is registration free? If so, then just sign up and look at it.

The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion

I think a thread about this came out a while back. I think they are cool, but a bad idea. While the picture they show in your link shows it to only take a small portion of the visor, it's still an unnecessary distraction. People seem to have a hard enough time keeping the rubber side down as it is, no need to make it worse with distractions inside the helmet. Not everyone is cut out to be a fighter pilot.

In the event of a get-off, replacing a $400 helmet is bad enough, let alone another $250-$350 for replacing the smashed-to-bits-high-tech-whiz-bang-gizmo that probably caused the crash in the first place.

Ok, maybe it's not as expensive as I thought. Unless I read it wrong. The $250-$350 includes the whole unit, helmet and all right? that's not too bad, price wise.


Still a bad idea though, IMHO.

Yup, I've always been an overachiever, which I'm sure is a foreign concept to you.
