The Anker Roav is an in-vehicle heads-up display that uses a clever interface to make navigation and vehicular operations safer and easier.

Heads-up displays, or HUDs, are a relatively new concept, with systems coming into prominence over the past decade thanks to companies like Garmin. Whether with a dedicated HUD device or one's own smartphone and a dashboard mount, many drivers use HUDs regularly. However, those screens are distracting and obstruct drivers' vision when placed on the windshield. The Anker Roav uses a translucent screen that has important details projected onto it, letting drivers read their HUD without taking their eyes off the road.

The Anker Roav is the best of both smartphones and HUD devices. Its screen is easier on the eyes than a smartphone's, but it connects to any Bluetooth phone so that it can convey the exact same information.
