You can make a HUD with a transparent OLED – if you want it to suck.

I get asked a LOT to use a TOLED, a crystal-clear display, to make a cheap wearable heads-up display project based on the Tenex volumetric display. So I did! The only problem is that IT DOESN’T WORK BECAUSE THE DISPLAY IS ONE INCH FROM MY EYE.

How did I make this electronics project? How did I design the headset? Why doesn’t it work, and why are you wrong when you think you can make it work? But most importantly, why DOES the Optigon work?! All will be revealed.
