Experience futuristic head-up display (HUD) for your automobile commute with Navdy. No more do you have to get distracted or rather tempted by text messages and calls on your cell phone while driving. The device rests on your dashboard with a high resolution projector giving driving directions and notifications on a transparent background so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road. Although this isn’t the first HUD device developed, it is the first to simplify user interface (UI). Unlike previous HUDs where information was reflected from your phone screen to windscreen, Navdy uses its own glass that is placed away from the windscreen. You can also communicate with Navdy using voice command and hand gestures. Navdy can be pre-ordered online for USD $299.
