Here's an augmented driving app that will no doubt make a neat addition to any petrolhead's motoring experience.

iOnRoad is a universal app for iOS tablets and smartphones - there's an Android version on the way - which lets a driver know how close a vehicle is in front of them. Have a ganders at the demonstration video below:

OK, so it's hardly going to set the world alight, but iOnRoad might prevent a few careless drivers from tailgating their way down the motorway.

Or give you some extra warning if a geezer in a BMW cuts you up.

You never know where the future of windscreen technology is heading, either. Health and safety aside, an augmented panel of glass would certainly spice up the future of the automobile industry. I'm just getting ahead of myself though, really. ®
