What is HUD?

This new technology is taking cars and other transportation vehicles to a whole new level.


HUD stands for heads-up display. This technology essentially shows information on the windscreen of any vehicle (be it a plane, a car, or anything else).

This information can span from speed to GPS directions.

The main practicality of heads-up displays is their ease of use and the fact that they allow drivers or pilots to not take their eyes of the road.

Like most technologies that have been commercialised over the last few years, heads-up displays were originally developed by the military.
