The humble Head-Up Display (HUD) was once the reserve of the fighter pilot or maybe an elite super solider, but this handy piece of tech, which beams important information directly into the user’s line of sight, is now a common optional extra on even the most affordable new cars.
While owners of the new Citroen C3 Aircross and Mazda CX-5 SUV enjoy having turn-by-turn navigation instructions magically displayed on or in front of the windscreen, motorcyclists still have to make do with a page from the A to Z taped to the bars or numerous stops to check the smartphone (that’s typically stashed in an awkward, waterproof pocket).
Nuviz, a San Diego-based startup specialising in high-tech motorcycle kit, thinks it has the answer with its debut product – a fully integrated Head-Up Display unit that attaches to most modern motorcycle helmets.
