    Too much like real life Forza, this could be dangerous.

    Not quite sure what the news is here, or why Jaguar have bothered. It's not a real device, or a real HUD - it's a concept of what a HUD could look like, except what that HUD looks like is the same as the last fifteen years of video games, except a bit rainier.

    Not complaining about the link being posted, btw, never - just seems a bit cheeky of Jaguar to claim it's a revolutionary concept when there's nothing inventive or new about it in the slightest.

    Though I did appreciate how they managed to make the ghost car look like an actual ghost, Ghostbusters style - green and glowy and a bit wobbly on the screen, just like real 80s movie effects!

    Yeah I could see how it could be dangerous. Say something goes wrong with the screen/system and it starts putting virtual cones/objects on the road. Someone may get confused, swerve to avoid it and cause an accident.

    Still looks cool though, but as sonofsanta said this isn't anything new really.

    Don't think it's been designed for every day normal use.
