It laser-paints a virtual 'cable' on your windshield - a red, 3D line on screen. The line hovers above the road, and you simply follow it - making navigating in a car as easy as following a train track (in theory, at least).
The system 'models' the road in real time, and projects its data 'into' the 3D landscape - so it can also highlight points of interest such as petrol stations.
The projections are fully transparent - and its makers claim, safer because the projections sit 'in' the landscape.
The system could also project crucial safety information onto the road by 'lighting up' barely visible road signs for drivers at night.
The laser system is far too complex to be housed in a standalone 'box' unit - the image you see reflects off a 'screen' flush in the dashboard.
Making Virtual Solid are currently seeking partners to build the unit into the dashboard of cars and trucks.
Making Virtual Solid refers to several Nasa studies about the safety of heads-up displays, and claims that the technology is less distracting than existing sat-nav systems.
