And that would have been like looking through beer goggles, not a lot of use. :roll:

Looks good, a bit pricey but that would presumably come down if it really took off.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, naked, drunk and on fire screaming YEEHAAW ! . . . .

All kidding aside . . . This has been kicking about in the motorcycling/biker community for a few years . . .

Upshot is, from those in the know, i.e. REAL fighter and military helicopter pilots tell us that it would need a whole new test just to assess if you could handle the information overload . . .

Also there is competition between left and right eye for dominance throw into the mix normal hazard perception . . .

and then AND THEN some bugger calls you on the hands free :doh:

if prince harry can cope with a hud display i think a normal biker can, it is the same as looking at the speedo(which half of them dont very often) without taking all their attention off the road, ive seen a couple of home made versions of these for cars and its a really good idea especially when going thru a speed camera area :D :D
