    Man! How do you get companies to let you try stuff out?
    I would love to test ride all this new tech.

    Wouldn't work for me, I'm nearsighted so w/glasses I can see great to ride but need them off for anything closer than arms length so it would just be fuzzy.. I can see my gps well enough as it's just far enough away.

    I think you should be fine. The HUD display's 13ft is pretty much like you would have your vision set up for distance.

    "The optics create a virtual image that floats in the riders line of sight, 13ft/4m in front of the eye."

    Edit:
    Those of us that wear bifocals may have issues.

    Interesting... something to think about... it will be a while as I'm invested in my current setup...

    Re: NUVIZ Fully Integrated Heads Up Display

    I thought about the focal length, because I wear bifocals. Most of the time I wear contacts with one setup for reading and the other setup for distance. (I know it sounds weird, but it works pretty well once you get used to it.)
    The thing is, my right eye is setup for reading, and the HUD is designed for the right eye. So, I am not sure if I would be able to read it or not. The contact has a very precise depth of focus, so I can read my computer screen, or a book, but if I get it closer than 12-15 inches, I cannot focus. Likewise, I cannot focus my right eye at a distance of 4 meters either.
    I suppose they designed it so it cannot be turned around because that is easier and cheaper than a system that can be switched.

    Not weird at all. When done with Lasik it's called monovision. Some people can handle it some can't.

    I don't know that was a design goal but more like just a fact of playing the odds. Most people in the world are right handed. Those people usually have the right eye as the dominant eye. Using it for the HUD makes sense. Maybe they could make a lefty version or use a modular construction so they could assemble 'right' or 'left' versions. But yeah that costs money.
    Don't tell me what I know. Tell me what I don't know.

    Ride safe, ride often.

    What they really need is an adjustable diopter, like on a camera viewfinder.

    This will be a short lived dinosaur. If we are getting autonomous cars, heads up displays will not be needed for the robot in the driver's seat. The market for a HUD on larger bikes is not going to be big enough, it's not needed on small bikes used for transport (think China, India, etc.), ATV's don't need one, and unicyclists have enough problems without reading their speedometer. Airplanes and fighter jets are a whole other issue, but again, drones have little need for this device.

    You ought to email the developers. Save them a whole lot of time and money because they obviously haven't thought this through.
