Clear LCD

Is there anywhere I can get a working transparent LCD screen? Graphical would be nice, but not vital. It doesn't need fancy colors or anything.

Well, you do realise that most normal computers monitors, have a transparent panel in them. They then have alot of gubbings at the back that create a evenly spread lighted background. So if its a pc monitor, you just need to get down and dirty and take one apart, the LCD panel will still work. Obviously, without the back lighting it will be hard see the screen as well as normally.

Was actually hoping for a small one to fit over my eye for a HUD.
mp4 / digital picture frame lcd you cannot focus on something that close to the eye. if you hold it at 0.1 m (which is the minimum to focus on it atleast for short time) you see everything thru it severely unfocussed
hmm, thats a hard one, a screen from those said items would be best, but hard to interface with anything. You can get screens closer to your eye using lenses.
contact lens that makes the screen focussed + glasses that undo the effect of the lens might give the desired effect but i dont like the idea of using contact lens / glasses if you have normal vision (it can get changed by getting used to the optics) question is what is to be displayed. maybe it can be loaded as images / video to the player / frame and thats all

I was thinking something that could be measured by a sensor on the finger. Heart rate, blood sugar, something like that. The way it is encoded isn't really vital. I'm sure binary or morse code or something would be an acceptable output.
then maybe smt leds ? it'll be simple with them and you can make it color coded

That's not a bad idea! Ahh, simplicity.
some lcds probably can be used as bar graph with circuit similar in complexity to that of leds but they still dont solve the focussing problem

Though one could probably have little lenses over the LED's if it was needed, Eh?
