AR Turning Signals

For your car and/or close quarter flying vehicles

Augmented Reality on your heads up display shows the intended direction of your personal vehicle to other persons tied into the same system.

NASA is working on this system for road signs and roads in the sky, why not for planes and cars? Could work with existing radar and a carrier turning/vehicle identity signal.

In the case of the sky, I mean for it to identify more directions than I mean for the roads.

       Good for boats too. (Should include right-of-way information for all vehicles: could help out at 4 way stops, oncoming boats, sail v. power, etc.)

       Recently saw a Motorcycle system where you have a third brake light stuck to the back of your helmet. To make it work you replace your regular brake light with a special one that also send a radio transmission up to the helmet, turning that light on whenever you brake.   

       A problem I can see, if you ride next to someone, might not their brake light also turn on your helmet light is signals get mixed?

       What if the biker turns to look at something. Won't know which way he's going.

In theory cross talk between bikers is possible. In real life it is at least highly unlikely.
