Nissan's Google Glass rival keeps you connected to social media [w/Video]

Nissan will premiere a wearable heads-up display (HUD) at next week's Tokyo motor show.

The Google Glass-like 3E prototype can connect to the Internet in real-time, allowing users to overlay information onto the lens, record projected images and communicate with others by sending information to their device.

This is likely to include vehicle performance analysis and the driver's vital signs as well as social media feeds for increased connectivity if its recently released Nismo smartwatch is anything to go by.

However Google Glass has already run into issues regarding road safety regulations – the UK has already banned the use of driving while using Glass – so the potential of this technology in-car remains in doubt.
