Re: obviously misguided tech
2013 BMW 6 series has a HUD built into the glass.
I don't think it's banned in WV, just no one owns one.
The HUD displays in cars are extremely limited in function to comply with state laws and to limit liability. You can't play angry birds, watch a video, or surf the web using the HUD built into a BMW.

HUD was first introd on a BMW M5 back in 04-05 time frame I believe. Only displayed speed and RPMs I think.
Any sort of distraction being radio console, phones or something in the windshield is a distraction and should not be allowed in cars period. Humans have prevent time and time again that we are not competent to multi task and drive at the same time. Technology is a kewl thing, however for driving, people need to be focused on driving, and there surroundings. Leave all the other stuff to passengers when they are riding or pull over if your alone or people just need to find patience and wait till they arrive. People are so impatient. My 2 cents.
GM had a B&W HUD in 1988 and color HUD in 1998. My 2001 Pontiac Bonneville had a HUD display.
