The advantages of HUDs are obvious. They provide drivers with valuable information without having to take their eyes off the road. The WeGo also allows drivers to operate the device without having to take their hands off the wheel thanks to a RF-based wireless remote control that attaches to the steering wheel.

The compact projector unit mounts on the dash and projects a virtual image 4.5-inches in size. The projector boasts a 400 x 240 pixel resolution as well as 13,000 cd/m2 brightness and 500:1 contrast ratio that the company says allows for clear visibility even in direct sunlight. An optical sensor will also automatically adjust brightness based on the ambient light, while the unit’s reflective image display technology eliminates the need to adjust focus.

I might buy a car just to get my paws on this.
Beautiful.

need to see it outside in real world situation. i've played with the aftermarket HUD setups for cars (ebay speedo/tach ones) and they are normally too dim or hard to see. mix that with multiple colors, more text/information on the screen. Just not sure

I have a stock HUD in my 98 Pontiac Grand Prix and I must say that thing is invaluable. I never have to take my eyes off the road. Of course it doesn't show anything fancy (just how fast you're going pretty much) but I don't really need to know anything else. It really does make driving a lot more safer.

I've come across some people who dislike HUDs but that's only because they're used to looking down all the time. They're afraid of change, even though it is a good change.

I agree i've used it in my fathers c6 and it is very helpful but it is specifically designed for that windshield, that viewing distance, that angle and is all 1 color with large print values. I'm concerned this will be too many colors some of which may not show up well and too much varied information (streets, street names etc) that will be too hard to see and jumble up the viewing area. If they made it larger then what is shown in that picture I could see more practical use.

They have a working product why not show us actual working pictures in a car in daylight instead of some horrid photoshop:



Lastly, the shape/texture/height/angle of someone dash seems it could greatly affect this. I am sure it comes with some sort of stickless sticky pad but those are normally as close to crap as a product can get especially for something as bulky as that

I don't mean to come off as the purely superficial ass that I, most assuredly am, but did they not have a more attractive woman in the entire company that could be prepped to demo this at the convention?
