Imagine a souped-up Google Glass built into a motorcycle or bicycle helmet that superimposes information and directions in front of your eyes as you speed down a highway or move through a congested downtown area.

Yeah, we kind of hate the name for the utter lack of imagination, too, but we definitely don't harbor the same negative sentiments about the product itself.  In fact, it just might be one of the sweetest aftermarket heads-up display solu...
