Garmin Head Up Display NavigationGarmin has a slick device that pairs with your smartphone via Bluetooth and will project a heads-up display of driving directions on your windshield. Along with standard directions it can also show speed, traffic info, speed camera alerts and suggest lanes.

Touch and feel navigationHere’s a concept that would really help the visually impaired and blind. The Touch & Go navigation system is a combination of a hand gadget and an earpiece that will give you directions as a relief map on its wearable navigator with tactile display.

The scale is 1:1,000 and the center of the display is where the user is currently. An arrow points toward where you should go, while audio through the earphones will speak any other details needed. Pretty interesting take on navigation for the blind.
