    Samsung Smart Windshield



    Seems to me like this is a good idea, but they took it a little too far with the email and texting. I would think that would be too much input for the rider to have while behind the bars. Maybe see WHO is texting and not what they are texting. Email is too much. Anything that would distract like that would be too much in my opinion.

    What do you guys think?

    Did you watch the video ?
    Seems to me that's exactly what it does and is patterned after what many cars do these days.

    I'm on the fence though and refuse to look at any ancillary device while moving.
    My GPS is tied into the radio for voice only.
    I guess I come down on the side of "not a good idea".

    AND it must also be a good windshield; those are hard to find in my experience.
    Don't believe everything that you think.

    I like it but I'd rather have it built into glasses like Google glass. I think the future is headed that way and don't think this samsung windshield will be useful tech for very long. There probably is no reasonable way to filter the information so you just get the minimum needed to make a decision. If samsung wrote an app that limited, someone else would just write an app that does more and everyone will use that, plus that limitation might negatively impact someone's decision to buy that windshield so...

    Cars do that already.
    And if there aren't already laws limiting the display of what a driver can see........there soon will be.
