@CJ, the Mercedes version is actually a flat, horizontal display on top of the dash in front of the driver that uses the windshield as a half-reflecting mirror. It might be possible to do that with a helmet, but the problem is that the face shield too close for your eyes to focus on it and the road at the same time. Additional optics would be required to make the image appear to be much farther away.

That's apparently what they`ve done here but on a very small scale. That little box in the corner IS the entire display. Doing it for a full field of view would be extremely difficult, not to mention expensive.

"I think I'm the only one here "
I understand perfectly how HIS works.
There`s more than one mechanism to remove the epidermis of a feline.

-Less mechanism in the helmet. I LIKE Google Maps.
-Add an interface with the bike. I`d be surprised if there`s not already a standard above OBD-II. Seems like it`d be something racers like.

I kinda like the way things are going with nearly-one-device life.
Not to mention, it`d get rid of that big-assed fender on the helmet...
