I just got an ide, about having computerhelmets with a hud. To interact with is as an computer you whould put it in your hand and left click, like it might be with the confirmed PDAs.
The helemts will be able to draw a hud on your screen when wearing it.

This will make you able to easely get data without interacting with a computer directly.

You whould smash a PDA on the top of it :P. The only thing you smash a computer on top of is a potato.

I might be able to imagine implementing this as a non-interactive basic text HUD (actually could be pretty neat). Still seems a bit of a stretch though.

We yelled at Cloudy and IRC and he kinda liked the idea as a peripheral for a PDA. Like you have the PDA to take inputs then you wrap the helmet like a monitor.

Yeah, I actually kind of like this idea. Could be very neat as a PDA peripheral.

yeah i think that its a interesting idea and would actually use it but i doubt that it will be added because it doesn't fit the mod's style

Two votes for it from admins. One against. Why on earth doesn't it fit with the mod's "style" anyway? ComputerCraft is progressing just like the real world does - the modders' goal is not to hold us back in the stone age ;)

These could be a great way to display real-time feedback from turtles, particularly with my style of turtle-assisted (as opposed to fully automated) mining. PDAs alone would be great for this already, as a way to monitor the turtles' status without going to each one or some fixed monitor terminal, but an added hud would eliminate the need to keep looking at the pda, giving me the important details in a continuous way. Endorsed!

[not happening] It would be really cool if the hud is able to gather info from the surroundings such as mobs and blocks :D [/not happening]

ffs. Cameras? Someone saw hud and jumped to google glass and people keep reacting like the suggestion is a 1:1 feature-exact version of google glass. Nobody proposed cameras. Nobody proposed 720p raster display for the hud. IT would be a text-only display, similar to a monitor, probably lower-res than a terminal, likely with no direct input mechanisms. It just displays what is written to it by a "connected" pda or computer, just like a monitor does.

I think it fits with the mod. You are able to display information directly in your field of view. That sounds great in my opinion.

No, you put a computer on your helmet and then other people can see the computer screen. You can't see it because it's on top of your head.
