Commenting on a bit in the vid—

I pretty much assumed that Tony Stark's helmet looks entirely transparent to him and that it's nearly a full three-sixty display, full of glowing arrows, targeting reticules and floating chunks of text and numbers. Pretty much like any HUD.

Or at least that's the way I'd design it. It would make it seem like he's not wearing a helmet at all.

Although that would be slightly confusing to people watching the movie who don't realize such things are possible.
