But thanks to HUDWAY, at least one sci-fi mainstay has made its way into the consumer market. Today the company launched a Kickstarter for its newest product, an affordable heads-up display called the HUDWAY Cast.

HUD For Glass Turns Google's Eyewear Into A Pilot's Wingman

Let's change the way we think about Google Glass for a moment. At the end of the day, they're just too jarring for the average person to feel comfortable wearing in public. To people who don't know what they are, they're weird. To people who do, they're $1,500 worth of easily-stolen accessory being flaunted on your face.

But for performing specific-tasks, Glass makes sense. If they can help you perform surgery, why not? If they can help you understand what someone is saying, go right ahead. And if you want to use them to fly a plane, hey, you're flying a plane.

[Deal Alert] Get $100 Off Any Recon HUD (Including Jet) In Celebration Of Australia's Tour Down Under Through Sunday January 26th

To celebrate the beginning of the pro cycling season (starting with the Tour Down Under in Australia) Recon, maker of HUD devices for athletes, is offering $100 off any of its HUD offerings.

Readers may remember Recon for Jet, the heads-up glasses that run Jelly Bean and compete against the still nascent Google Glass for the hearts and minds of athletes. The glasses debuted last Spring, with "Pilot Edition" units going up for pre-order last June. The current batch of Jet headsets is currently on a first-come, first-serve basis with units expected to ship out in "Spring," though no specific time frame is offered by the company's website.

Recon Instruments Looks To 'Jet' Over Google Glass With New Heads-Up Display Running Jelly Bean

Heads up, Google, Glass is about to get some serious competition. Recon Instruments, a Canadian technology company known for athlete-focused heads-up display products, is looking to expand into general-purpose HUD technology. The company's prototype device - dubbed Jet - was officially unveiled today, and Recon Instruments hopes to release a retail product by the end of this year.

At first glance, the Jet looks like little more than a pair of sunglasses with an attached LCD screen; you won't be mistaking Recon Instrument's HUD for Google's anytime soon. On closer inspection, though, the Jet has promise. Boasting a dual-core CPU, HD camera, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, ANT+ and a myriad of sensors, Recon Instrument's glasses look to account for every augmented reality scenario imaginable.

Google Outs "Project Glass" Google Glasses Prototypes, Wants Your Input On How Your Face Is Going To Look In The Future

They may not be available for sale yet, but Google would like you to know that the future is coming. Dubbed "Project Glass", Google has released some photos of what the now-confirmed Google Glasses might look like when released, alongside a video demonstrating how the UI might work. It's all just show and no tell right now, but it's enough to whet our appetite.

It's not quite enough, though, to allay our reservations. For starters, the glasses, while not particularly gaudy and actually somewhat stylish, seem to only have one tiny lens hovering over a small portion of the right eye.

Google Is Planning Pricey Glasses With An Augmented Reality Heads-Up Display, May Sell Them By Year's End

You've got to hand it to Google. They don't let silly things like "feasibility" and "finances" get in the way of an awesome idea. The New York Times is reporting that Google is working on a set of glasses with the specs of a smartphone, including 3G and 4G data connectivity, GPS, a camera, and oh yeah, a heads-up display.

Not the actual display. We wish, though.

The glasses, which are supposedly under development at Google's not-so-secret Google X lab, would cost about as much as a smartphone, so they likely won't be for the light wallet. That being said, if they work as advertised, they could still sell plenty.
