Tesla Glass

It's speculative, but one of those rumors that confirms things that have been suspected for a long time.

Microvision is a player in this space.


The project reportedly started close to the start of this year, so it can't be too close to its completion. Even though Elon Musk has demonstrated he is the kind of guy who thinks ahead (just look at his Master Plan for proof), we would be willing to bet that this mysterious "Tesla Glass" has very much to do with the Model 3 sedan. That doesn't mean it applies exclusively toTesla's next car, but we should be able to see its fruition as soon as the end of next year. Or maybe even sooner.

OK, but what is it all about? Well, it's about Tesla, and it's about glass. And when you put those two together, you can get all sorts of results. Let's start with what we'd like it to be: a completely new way of making a heads-up display in a car. While we realize that a HUD spreading the whole windshield would be pretty difficult to realize, it could still be done using some sort of eyewear. Think Google Glass. But that would just show a lack of imagination in the naming department from Tesla, so it's probably not that. 

However, even if it doesn't take the entire windshield surface, there's still plenty of room to improve the heads-up display technology, and everybody's been suspecting the Model 3 will have one ever since we caught a glimpse at that barren interior. So "Tesla Glass" having some sort of connection with HUD technology is most definitely a possibility.
