Suzuki was actually working on a projector system from the side of the helmet to the visor. But it's to bulky right now to wear safely. I would like one, if it wasn't too busy. Anybody ever see the movie Firebirds? That HUD is cool, but it takes some getting used to.
The Suzuki BKing concept bike had an integrated HUD that used a CCD attached to the helmet for a rearview mirror. I personally like the Idea. Fighter pilots and Helicopter pilots use them all the time. The only worry I would have is target fixating without looking outside of your helmet....could be an issue.
My dream bike would be painted all flat black. It wouldn't have a gauge cluster at all. HUD would have 2 modes. Mode 1 would have minimal info on it such as MPH, RPM, and TEMP.
Idiot lights would light up at top of HUD for oil pressure, overheat, turn signals and high beam indicator.
You could press a button on side of helmet to go to "advanced mode" which would display all the extraneous stuff such as trip meters, odometer, fuel level, etc. for mode 2.
Oh, and the transparency would be adjustable.
