HUD Goggles

HUD goggles side view

This headset enables the overlay of information on top of its user's field of view. The field of view of the user is captured by a camera and then fed to video goggles, while a MAX7456 OSD chip overlays text on the video feed.

The front camera has been chosen to be sensitive to near infrared light, which allows the device to be used as night vision goggles when paired with IR projectors Additionally, the video input source can be changed to any composite signal, which allows for example the user to see the feed from a drone's camera or to use have a head mounted display for a raspberry pi.

Here is a list of the parts used in this project:

The code running on the Arduino pro mini is available on GitHub.
