There are already VGA Compatible glasses that are capable of having a
computer screen projected on. It was on the gadget show where he used a
Mini-ITX motherboard in a backpack, windows xp and bluetooth mini keyboard
and mouse. The result was a rather crap (because of small display and
windows xp being crap) HUD, this though, could be massively improved.
