The Null Device

HUDs for bikes

A Seattle company is about to start selling heads-up displays for motorcycle helmets. The Sportvue display will use a GPS receiver to determine speed, and a lens, mirror and backlit LCD to project the information onto the visor, in the periphery of the driver's vision. A bicycle version, which also displays heart rate, is in the works.

(I wonder how long until we have HUDs in sunglasses, connected to address books, mobile phones and web browsers.)

Nice idea; I'd thought of it a couple of times, though it would be a little distracting.

I wonder if they're being pedalled by a tall bearded Victorian gentleman in a long gray coat?
