    Most fighter plane cockpits are designed with a heads up display (HUD)
    which projects vital information on a glass screen in front of the
    pilot so he can pay more attention to what goes on outside the plane
    and not the instruments and displays inside the plane.

    Until now, that is. That's because the F35 Lightning II Joint Strike
    Fighter - a joint endeavor from Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, Northrop
    Grumman, and British Aerospace - has become the first fighter aircraft
    in decades to be designed without a HUD. This is thanks the fighter
    pilot's new, and albeit frightening, best friend, a combat helmet
    which uses a miniaturized version of the HUD inside the helmet itself
