Next-Gen Spacesuit Helmet Has an “Iron Man” Heads Up Display

An artificial intelligence firm says its heads-up display for astronauts could help them better manage complex space missions.

Hypergiant Industries built an “Iron Man”-inspired space helmet called HyperVSR, which can display details like an astronaut’s vital signs or other information about a mission.
