Mini is rolling out a new product, and no, it's not a car. Announced at the Auto Shanghai show, the Mini Augmented Vision is actually a pair of augmented reality glasses that offers up info about your ride in your field of vision. You can see some of the following details as you're riding around in your Mini vehicle of choice: destination points that you can select pre-ride, the navigation display of your first and last mile, heads up info like speeds and speed limits, navigation arrows plus points of interest on your route, incoming message notifications, an X-ray view of the vehicle, plus a view of the curb from the car's external cameras so you can park easier. And, of course, since it's AR and see-through, you can still see the road in front of you. As you might expect, there's no details about pricing or availability just yet, but we'll be sure to update the post with more when we hear more.

What do you think? I'd prefer this to HUD... I wonder if it might require Visual Boost XL or some top-spec configuration?

Mini USA posted about this on Twitter and I had to respond by telling them that it's cool and all, but before we get too crazy it would be kind of nice if they'd bring Mini Connected up to the same spec as iPhone for the Android users... and we don't have any snap in adapters yet either, sooooo...

Pretty sure that's not what they wanted to hear, but it would be ever so nice if they'd finish the current tech and give me access to all the toys I don't get because I bought the "wrong" cell phone.
