Head-up displays go holographic

Technology Review
21 October 2009

In the last few years, head-up displays (HUDs), which project information onto the driver's view of the road, have started appearing in a few high-end cars. But a more compact kind of projection device developed by Light Blue Optics, based in Cambridge (UK) uses holographic projection technology and is small enough to fit inside a car mirror.

"We can make an HUD so small you can put it into a rearview mirror or wing mirror," says Edward Buckley, head of business development for Light Blue Optics.

The new technique could see holographic projection displays more widely used in future autos.
