This sounds pretty cool, GM is working on technology that turns your entire windshield into a giant a Heads Up Display in your car. They’re talking about things like recognizing the edge of the road in fog or other poor lighting conditions, spotting animals by the side of (or ON!) the road, roadsigns & so on.
Now add displays of standard instrumentation such as speed, fuel, oil pressure, water temp, navigation aids and you’ll have a pretty impressive ride.
Of course, I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for something like that to show up on the showroom floor very soon. When it finally does, look for a hefty price tag.
