Here is an awesome upgrade the your Iron Man mask. Michael Darby on Hackster.io shared this project to add display lenses to the mask.

I always have a lot of ideas flying around my head for projects; one of them is to get a toy Iron Man mask and put some hardware in it to make it project information to the wearer, kind of like the holographic interface Mr Stark himself uses. With the upcoming release of Avengers: Infinity War I thought – what better time to make it.

With the PiGlass already in my portfolio of projects the majority of the coding and work was already done, the main part was fitting it all into a toy Iron Man mask and getting it to work over 2 OLED screens and also get just the right optics to display the information to the wearer.

The key is the lenticular lenses and the holographic pyramid, the plan is to project the OLED screens text through the lenses and then reflect them off of cut down parts of the pyramid in the eyes, the lenses will focus the text so it is readable close up and the fact the OLED’s have no back light means the only thing visible in the reflection is the text, thus showing the HUD data and enabling the wearer to see through ahead of them still.
