    Those kinds of wind speed measurements each have an advantage and a disadvantage. The anerometer style would be able to measure total wind speeds in a 2D plane, so they would pick up the total effect...

    The eye mounted heads up display isn't so difficult to build, what is hard is finding a high resolution video display - generally small ones don't have the kind of image clarity that we have come to...

    What broke on your GPS? Unless it was totally destroyed, maybe its fixable.

    "PND"s (personal navigation devices) are just small computers. Most generic GPSs these days have an ARM cpu and a small...
