The Future is Here Already, Part 2: Awesome HUDs for Driving

MVS LLC is developing a novel system for presenting directions to drivers. The system, called Virtual Cable, projects onto your windshield an image of what looks like an overhead cable over your route. Unlike the talking directions typical of modern satnav systems, this is silent, intuitive and unambiguous.

Their home page includes simulated pictures and videos.

The only trouble I can imagine is that drivers would focus on this kind of cue too deeply and start ignoring other things on the road.
