GM's Enhanced Windshield Uses Lasers to Make Your Road Trips Safer

It makes it feel like you're in the middle of Tron, but GM's new heads-up display's not just a way to play out childhood fantasies. The system projects laser-generated images onto windshields, providing a great looking enhanced vision display.

The idea is that unlike some of the HUDs on the market now, this display would be full-windshield and actually highlight or outline potential dangers by using data from a combination of on-vehicle sensors and cameras:

That would be fine as long as there is a way to turn it off because in some situations it can be VERY distracting.

Nice to see taxpayer money so hard at work, considering they are a government owned institution as of this moment. Sometimes I wonder how the federal government has distorted the automotive market. After all, no other company was able to use subsidized money in order to invest in all sorts of new things, let alone save their asses. This is what makes me so suspicious about how our government is treating Toyota.

I really think we need to be suspicious on how Toyota is treating it's customers. They haven't been exactly up front on many things, like their reluctance to recall for sticking accelerators.
