Pioneer prototype laser-based heads-up display with Android (video)

Pioneer prototype laser-based heads-up display with Android hands-on
Imagine the screen of your Android smartphone project as a head-up display on your car windshield for easy viewing without taking your eyes off the road! Check out Pioneer's vision of the future, a prototype that uses an embedded laser projector (a Microvision, as it were). Right now it's just running a static demo, but the idea is that a virtual concierge (represented by our favorite mascot pops up to give you information, and you could also get streaming video from traffic cameras, all without you having to look down. The information is supposed to come via a smartphone, we learned later an Android one at that, though things are a little vague. A release date is a little vague too, sometime in 2012, though we're told the company is working with car companies. But could we get this by next year? We'll see.
