Google HUD

John Gruber:

My first thought was to laugh, but, hey, at this point, let’s give Google the benefit of the doubt and hope these things are actually useful and cool. We’re not going to be tapping on 3 to 5 inch pieces of glass for the entire future of mobile computing. Something’s got to come next. Maybe heads-up displays are next.

US$250 to $600. I’m thinking the cheaper version comes with ads.

Seth Weintraub:

The heads up display (HUD) is only for one eye and on the side. It is not transparent nor does it have dual 3D configurations, as previously speculated.

Not transparent. For one eye. Doesn’t sound too good.

Update 2012.02.23: Google should consider using the Lumus OE-32 optical engine.
