itwbennett writes “On display at Japan’s Ceatec show this week is a heads-up display from Pioneer that links with a smartphone’s navigation system. The prototype uses a laser to display bright, high-contrast, full-color images on a screen that would be mounted above the dashboard so drivers don’t have to take their eyes fully off the road in order to receive driving instructions from their robot overlords. The demonstration model was hooked up to an Android-based phone and displayed a navigation map on the left-hand side and an animated Android robot on the right-hand side that passed on information to drivers. ‘We are currently aiming for an after-market product, but we are talking with car manufacturers,’ said Masaya Hashida, tech manager at Pioneer’s smart vision business development department.”
An anonymous reader points out another gadget shown at Ceatec: a pair of augmented reality glasses that projects information to a user’s peripheral vision and weighs only 20 grams.
