Sunglasses With Integrated Instrument Displays…?

This may sound, and probably is, a bit far fetched, but heads up displays are coming, to the yachting scene as well. Someday. They’re being used in the military right now and have found their way into the industry. While useful/usable applications for recreational sailing might take a while to appear, I guess that something like this could be valuable to those of you that are really into performance sailing. And don’t forget the yachting maintenance and engineering industry.
“These screens, often referred to as “heads up” displays, are used extensively by the military, which is loading soldiers up with displays that help them do everything from seeing around corners to referencing global positioning maps.”
